Bird song for little ones

Use Birdsong Radio to encourage children to relax during quiet times or see what they can recognise with our bird song bingo game. Sadly, many of our most familiar and tuneful bird singers are under threat. We want children to grow up and be confident they’ll still hear bird song in their lifetime.

The natural sounds of bird song remind us of the beauty of the natural world, and therefore have the power to bring us back to nature, wherever we are. From Chaucer to Shakespeare and Handel to Beethoven, bird song has inspired us for centuries. See what it can do for you.
