About this book

Of the 800+ species of birds recorded in North America, almost 400 have been seen on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket. It is little wonder, then, that birders (ornithologists) flock to Massachusetts to see the spectacular aviary display! As Priscilla Bailey notes in her Preface, this new book brings together aspects of field guide, travelogue, and photo-essay. Nearly 300 varieties of birds, both native and migratory, and some rare visitors from far-off lands, were photographed in their Cape and Islands habitats.

The images reveal beauty, both in the birds themselves and the artistic eye of the photographer. For convenience, The Birds of Cape Cod and the Islands is divided into various habitat settings: the yard, marshes and ponds, the seashore, fields, and forests. In addition one chapter documents the birds that are rarely seen on the Cape & Islands. Also, maps show the best sites for viewing the birds in nature. For bird lovers, visitors to the area, and connoiseurs of fine wildlife photography, The Birds of Cape Cod and the Islands will be is a welcomed treasure, enjoyed time and again
