This extensively revised edition of A Bird-Finding Guide to Canada will have Canadian birdwatchers grabbing their binoculars and itching to get out to the birding “hot spots” described in its pages. Editor J. Cam Finlay has drawn on the expertise of birders from every region of the country to tell you what birds to look for and where to find them across each province and territory.
Want to know, for instance, where Great Grey Owls, Sage Grouse, and Yellow Rails may be found in the prairie provinces? Are you travelling to Vancouver on business and eager to know what birds you might see in Stanley Park? Planning a trip to the Maritimes and need advice on the best spots along the Bay of Fundy to find masses of migrating shorebirds? Need suggestions for rewarding day-trips in the vicinity of Ottawa, Toronto, or Winnipeg?
You’ll find it all in this exciting guide, along with:
Line maps of each province and territory, with “hot spots” indicated, and pencil sketches throughout by Terry Thormin; current addresses and telephone numbers of enthusiastic contact people and associations; useful and specific travel advice; a compact checklist of species, showing both frequency and location by province, and much more.
Whether you are planning a trip right across Canada, or are simply eager to learn more about your own area, whether you are a newcomer to this fascinating pursuit or are a keen birder seeking to add those hard-to-find species to your lifetime list, this book is sure to become an indispensable companion to the bird guides and road maps in your knapsack, flight bag, or glove compartment.
