About this book

Opens with practical advice on getting started in birding-choosing binoculars, bird identification, proper field techniques, etc. Then after a concise 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 interpretive activities available to visitors.

I can't recall reading a book that makes birding seem more attractive... I look forward to getting a copy and using it. -Bob R. O'Brien, author of Our National Parks and the Search for Sustainability
