A popular destination for bird-watchers from across the country, the coastal region of North Carolina is a seasonal home to approximately 400 species of bird, some of which are found more easily here than anywhere else in the United States. A Birder's Guide to Coastal North Carolina is the first guide to the prime bird-watching spots of the Tar Heel coast and nearby areas - including national seashores, national forests and wildlife refuges, state parks and game lands, and other public areas. Written for both casual and serious birders, the book features detailed site guides to the entire coastal region, including the Outer Banks. John Fussell provides an annotated checklist, habitat information, and frequency graphs indicating seasonal abundance for all regularly occurring species. The book also includes a section on the 141 most sought-after species on the coast. Fussell describes the best places and conditions - seasonal, weather, and tidal - for finding these popular varieties. Detailed maps of most of the major birding sites complement the text. A Birder's Guide to Coastal North Carolina will be an enduring resource that belongs in the library of birders and naturalists.
