Description - Birds of the Northwestern National Parks by Roland H. Wauer
To help both beginning and advanced bird watchers, this guide introduces the most common birds and the most likely places to see them in the Northwestern National Parks of America. The book opens with advice on getting started by choosing binoculars, bird identification and proper field techniques. Then after a discussion of the national parks as islands of bird habitat, the succeeding chapters fully describe each park, including its plant and animal communities and the facilities and interpretative activities available to visitors. Wauer also takes readers on "walks" through each park's most popular and accessible places, where he explains the identification and behaviour of the birds that visitors are most likely to see. Each account is closed with a review of the park's bird life and a list of key species.
