Many bird songs are rich and complex, difficult to remember, and nearly impossible to imitate.

Some species' songs, however, sound as if they could have been whistled by a human.

These simpler, pure-noted songs are some of the most familiar and easy to remember. These songs, including the "pee-a-wee" of this Eastern Wood-Pewee, are a great place to start building your knowledge of birding by ear!
