A concise full-colour guide to wild birds and birding hotspots
Birdwatching expeditions are becoming more and more popular. Across New Brunswick there are areas that are internationally recognized for the opportunity to see migrant and breeding birds, such as Semipalmated Sandpipers and Peregrine Falcons.
This book introduces 200 of the top species found all around the province, along the Bay of Fundy in the south and the beaches of the east coast, as well as habitats in the interior. Whether observing spectacular hawks or eagles in the wild or seabirds over the ocean, listening for warblers in the forest, or the first spring birds at the feeder, this guide is designed to allow for quick and easy identification.
Original full-colour illustrations by Jeffrey Domm show prominent features that birdwatching enthusiasts can use to identify a species. Text and graphic keys give helpful tips for observing. They also show habitat preference egg (for in-province breeding species) months the bird can be seen in the area preferred bird feeder type.
The birding hotspot section (with an accompanying map) shows 25 locations across the province where good birdwatching is assured.
The Formac Pocketguide to New Brunswick Birds is a handy reference for beginners and a useful local guide for practised birders.
