Summary

Summary

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
