Publisher’s description Birds of the Pacific Northwest describes and illustrates more than 400 bird species commonly encountered in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and British Columbia. This comprehensive, full-color guide is organized to follow the order in which groups and species are presented by the American Union. Range maps for each species provide valuable information for identification.

This is a beautifully produced guide to either take with you when out in nature looking for birds or to have on the shelf as an as-needed go-to resource.
