Very specialized bird musicology which attempts "to reckon seriously with the totality of songs by the 5,000 or more species that could, without stretching the term to the utmost, be said to 'sing'." A nigh on to impossible task, reports Hartshorne, but he gives it that old academic try, from the New Zealand Tuis' low-pitched warbles to the Olive Whistler's "peeee-poooo" trill. The songsters are scientifically ranked, measured, spectrogrammed, and related. Ornithologists will croon. (Kirkus Reviews)
First published in 1973, Born to Sing is a monumental undertaking, one of the most comprehensive, totally entertaining studies of bird vocalizations ever available. It offers a global survey of modes of singing, encompassing more than 5,000 species of singing birds, with special analyses of nearly 200 species with highly developed songs. For the professional ornithologist, informed birdwatchers, biologists, psychologists, philosophers, and musicologists with a strong interest in nature.
