It comes with a CD with bird sounds to help with IDs.

I need to get me one of these! Would come in very handy. Kalahari.net has them for R153, not a bad price at all.

I have this book, and its really great. It has a very good and easy to use system to identify LBJs where it uses the process of elimination to eventually arrive at the correct bird. And it comes with a CD of all their calls which also helps.
