The Backyard Birdsong Guide

I picked up a copy of The Backyard Birdsong Guide: Western North America at an overpriced gardening store now shuttering it's doors. I have contemplated the purchase of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology audio field guide for quite some time but balked at the purchase price. The Western North America version is considerable smaller with fewer birdsongs. But the birds are exactly the ones we see on our property, so I made the dive and bought the book at a 20% discount.

The battery cover was missing. This was the last copy. I hemmed and hawed, then made the purchase. I figured I could make my own cover. I used a scrap piece of cardboard cut to size and covered it with flowered origami paper. The book is enjoyed by all.
