297 Untitled Chapters! 297!

Table of contents only gives chapter numbers. 3 1/2 hours of birdcalls with no way of finding the specie you are looking for without listening to 3 1/2 hours of audio and then compiling your own table of contents. How is this helpful? I feel like I have totally wasted my money and now my time. I highly recommend you do not waste your device's storage on this purchase.

What would have made Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs: Eastern Region better?

I downloaded this and there were no identifiers for the songs. In otherwords, I couldn't look up a a specific bird song, which to me is the whole point of getting something like this. Very disappointed.

Would be SO much better if each bird song in the table of contents were listed by the bird’s name rather than a chapter number

All the birds you want to hear, and each recording is clear and distinct. Each chapter is a different bird’s song, but unfortunately is named by a chapter number rather than the bird’s name.

No Chapter Names is MAJOR ISSUE

it is very inconvenient not having chapter names, it really makes this audiobook unusable unless you just want to listen to birds. If you’re trying to identify by sing, forget it because you’d have to listen to the entire book.

Nice recordings but not user-friendly overall

The recordings of bird songs and calls are great, but one terrible stumbling block makes this product not user-friendly. As you're looking at your mobile phone, all 280 chapters are NOT LABELED BY BIRD! It's just "Chapter 1, Chapter 2, etc" so you have no way to skip to the bird you're trying to hear again and learn. So frustrating. Don't the editors have any care for people trying to learn? We've been out of the compact disk world for ages -- PLEASE update your Audible chapter headings!

Lastly, it would be nice if there were more variations of each song presented here. That being said, it does a good job of choosing the most common variations.
