About this book

The Salton Sea, California's largest inland lake, supports a spectacular bird population that is among the most concentrated and diverse in the world. Sadly, this crucial stopover along the Pacific Flyway for migratory and wintering shorebirds, landbirds, and waterfowl is dangerously close to collapse from several environmental threats. This is the first thoroughly detailed book to describe the birds of the Salton Sea, more than 450 species and subspecies in all.
