This site is created for avian rehabilitators, birders and anyone interested in studying birdsong. It seeks to provide recordings and analysis of songs to help those trying to learn them. It also seeks to help rehabilitators understand how song develops and how to best facilitate song learning in the birds they raise. The section on the development of songs is still under construction. It is expected to be completed in the summer of 2024.

All recordings on this site were made by Jean Chamberlain and, except where noted, were recorded in central North Carolina.
