The peninsula and offshore islands that make up Nova Scotia – one of Canada's easternmost provinces – are home to more than 400 species of resident or migratory birds. With three distinctive coastlines with different characteristics, birding is excellent year-round. Spring and summer bring vireos, thrushes and warblers while fall visitors will see raptors in migration, huge flocks of seabirds as well as Auks, Loons and other seabirds. This portable folding guide includes illustrations and descriptions of 140 species and a back-panel map featuring the top bird viewing hotspots. A handy field reference for birders building their life-lists and the perfect take-along guide for visitors and nature enthusiasts of all ages.
