About this book

With its dramatic range of habitats, from the beaches of the Atlantic to the wetlands of the Chesapeake Bay and the alpine forests of the Appalachians, the Mid-Atlantic region is home to 346 species of birds. This is a comprehensive field guide to bird life in the area that also directs readers to public sites where each species can be found. Rappole provides extensive information about every species: description, identification details for distinguishing similar species, habitat preference, vocalization, range, and Mid-Atlantic seasonal occurrence, abundance, and distribution. Each entry is accompanied by a colour photograph and by a range of maps.

"Unique to this book is detailed driving instructions to over 220 of the best birding sites." -- Southeastern Naturalist
