Birds of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest

Author: Richard Cannings
Tom Aversa
Hal Opperman

Discover more than four hundred bird species in Birds of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest—the quintessential guide for serious birders or those who are ready to take their bird-watching to the next level. Join renowned bird experts Richard Cannings, Tom Aversa, and Hal Opperman as they illuminate key identification traits, vocalizations, seasonal status, habitat preferences, and feeding behaviours. Compact full-page accounts include maps and nine hundred photographs by the region’s top bird photographers. With a wide territorial range that covers much of BC through to southern Oregon and the Rocky Mountain crest west beyond the Pacific coast, this is the most complete and comprehensive portable guide of its kind on the market. This region is a well-defined biogeographic unit composed of three large ecoregions—the coastal rainforest, North America’s northernmost deserts and the northern/mid-Rockies to the east. Birds of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest is your birding handbook for a vast region rich in refuges, protected sanctuaries, public parks, and raw wilderness—and its depth transcends any guidebook that has preceded it.
