The northwoods is a place full of beauty, secluded landscapes, crystal-clear lakes, dark nights full of stars, and a myriad of wild animals.
Call of the Northwoods takes a look at the most commonly heard and seen animals of the northwoods and gives the natural histories of each species, explaining where you will see it or hear it, and also includes an audio CD of various animal calls and songs.
The text is designed to answer the questions: What species will I likely see in the northwoods? and What is making that sound?
Over 100 species are covered, including 14 herp species (the painted turtle, snapping turtle, mink frog, spring peeper), 70 bird species (the common loon, bald eagle, barred owl, great gray owl, numerous warblers, pileated woodpecker), and 22 mammal species (the gray wolf, porcupine, black bear, moose).
Gorgeous color photos of the species accompany the informative text, and best of all, an audio CD of 50 of the most commonly heard species is included with the book.
The haunting wail of the common loon, the lilting song of the whip-poor-will, the low hoot of the great horned owl, the incessant chirping of the spring peeper, and the lonely howl of the gray wolf are all included on the CD, making this book a complete package for anyone who loves wildlife and the northwoods.
