Eddie "ET" Thomas presents �Bewick�s Wren: Adventures in Song�
After recent exposures to digital recording devices and free computer
software that create sonograms, ET�s old interest in recording bird
songs was rekindled. Until ET read a book by Dr. Donald Kroodsma,
�The Singing Life of Birds�, he didn�t know where he wanted to go with
this interest, but within a mere six pages, the author explained the
fascinating singing cycle and song habits of the Bewick�s Wren, and ET
was focused and motivated. . . .
ET said to himself �I have a Bewick�s Wren in my own backyard. I
wonder how many songs my wren knows? Does he have neighbors singing
his songs? Wouldn�t it be great to hear a young bird learning to
sing?� Inspired by Dr. Kroodsma�s research, ET applied and
experienced the doctor�s findings in his own backyard!
Eddie Thomas gave a workshop to Los Angeles Audubon Society on
digiscope photography, now, ET will open a new emphasis in birding by
not only discussing how to record bird song, he will discuss his
project learning the intricacies and consistencies of the Bewick�s
