Bird Songs & Calls of Lake Tahoe

by John V. Moore


The vocalizations featured in this cassette are those that a casual birder can reasonably expect to hear while visiting Lake Tahoe's forests and clearings. Naturally, all of the vocalizations will not be present at any one time, and there is a tremendous variation in bird vocalizations depending on the time of year. However, it is my hope that after listening to this tape a few times, the listener will be able to walk through our Tahoe forests and identify many of the bird calls emanating therefrom.
