Where the Birds Are
The 100 Best Birdwatching Spots in North AmericaBook - 2001
All the information you need to plan exciting and rewarding birding trips. From vast wildernesses to the most cluttered urban sprawl, North America is home to a wide variety of birds. More than 900 species have been spotted on this continent -- some breed here, others migrate through regularly, and still others may be seen on rare occasion when they stray from their usual range in Europe or Asia. Where the Birds Are features 100 of the best birding sites in the United States and Canada, from Denali National Park, Alaska, to Central Park in New York City, from the Everglades in Florida to Churchill, Manitoba. Every corner is represented, and ranges from national parks and wildlife refuges, to state parks, nature preserves, research stations, forest, and canyons. Each site description includes sections on habitat, bird life, and visitor information, as well as a map and directions. Over 400 photographs feature each site and show some of the birds that may be found there. A special 20-page section provides a mini field guide to the book's most frequently mentioned birds. Whether you are a novice or an experienced birder, Where the Birds Are will guide you to the very best locations in North America to pursue your passion and add species to your life list.
