Describes the representative birds in California's seven major bioregions: ocean, seashore, coastal ranges, Central Valley, mountains and foothills, Great Basin, and deserts. It explains key relationships among weather patterns, plant communities, and the ecological rhythms of these habitats and shows how these factors relate to the distribution, behavioral adaptations, and environmental challenges of its birds.
This is the first book on California birds that is based on habitats. I would have loved to have it when I started birdwatching in 1958! I would have read it cover to cover a dozen times and slept with it under my pillow. - Steve Laymon, Natural Resource Specialist, Bureau of Land Management"
