AllMusic Review by

A sort of aural field guide to the cries (one hesitates to call them "songs") of shrikes, falcons, hawks, owls, ravens, crows, magpies, nutcrackers, and jays, this collection is at once both fascinating and a little creepy, mainly because all of these birds are predators in one fashion or another. Some of the tracks go on for a bit (one slides in at over 7 minutes), but a kind of gruff personality begins to emerge in some these cuts, albeit a personality you wouldn't want to meet if you were a whole lot smaller and ran into one of these characters in a back alley.
