The essential bestselling field guide to every bird species found in BC and the Pacific Northwest, now revised and updated.

"For the majority of serious birders in the West who tend to limit their explorations to one or another state or province, this guide should expand their horizons and encourage more cross-border birding. In sum, this guide is an essential reference for birders west of the continental divide, particularly for intermediate and advanced observers."--Eugene Hunn, Western Birds: The Quarterly Journal of Western Field Ornithologists

Discover more than four hundred bird species in Birds of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest --the quintessential guide for serious birders or those who are ready to take their bird-watching to the next level. In this newly revised and updated edition, join renowned bird experts Richard Cannings, Tom Aversa, and Hal Opperman as they illuminate key identification traits, vocalizations, seasonal status, habitat preferences, and feeding behaviours. Compact full-page accounts include maps and nine hundred photographs by the region's top bird photographers. With a wide territorial range that covers much of BC through to southern Oregon and the Rocky Mountain crest west beyond the Pacific coast, this is the most complete and comprehensive portable guide of its kind on the market.

Each entry has 1 or 2 good-size, clear photos of the bird; and categorized paragraphs of physical description, range, similar species, etc. An excellent guide which covers the area from northern California to Alaska west of the Rockies so it shows 'unexpected' birds that fly beyond their normal range.

pages are shinny with great photos, and a smaller, good write up.
