Description

The ultimate bestselling field guide to birds of the Pacific Northwest bioregion, now fully revised in its Second Edition!

“An essential reference for birders west of the continental divide, particularly for intermediate and advanced observers.”—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. Now in its Second Edition, this bestselling field guide is fully updated to conform to recent comprehensive revisions to taxonomic standards and sequencing of avian families, making it consistent with the most current print and online resources.

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 portable guide of its kind on the market.
