British Birdsong, an illustrated montage of sound

This sound collage of British Birdsong is annotated with labels and illustrations of each bird, including multiple birds as their songs layer. It’s a calming and educational ten-minute offering from BBC Earth for International Dawn Chorus Day, the first Sunday of May.

Featured performers include the robin, wren, greenfinch, magpie, jackdaw, blackcap, collared dove, song thrush, and more.

There’s just one correction and clarification: “As some of the eagle-eyed birders noticed, the artist representation shows a North American goldfinch instead of the European goldfinch.”


Have you heard these birds where you live? Or have you heard birds recently that you’ve never heard before?

If you’re in the United States, Canada, or Mexico, you can identify your North American birdsong with help from The Cornell Lab’s AllAboutBirds.org’s Guide or Audubon.org’s North American Bird Guide. Both include incredible audio samples.
