About this book

This beautiful little volume will delight and inspire bird lovers who live in or are visiting southwestern BC. An amazing amount of useful information is packed into this handy, portable guide, which will appeal both to experienced birders wanting to learn more about the behaviours and habitats of local species and to beginners who are still learning to identify them. Along with rich, full-colour photos of each species, you'll find a map of the region covered, information on birding equipment, habitat descriptions, and tips on when to go birding and how to attract birds to your yard. Pages are colour-coded according to related species, and the guide is organised by families so that related species are shown together.
