Fans of the series of Pacific Northwest field guides from Timber Press in Portland might like to know that they have published a new guide for birds (it joins their guides covering wildlife, insects, wildflowers, trees & shrubs, mushrooms, and the natural history of Pacific Northwest mountains).
John Shewey and Tim Blount, Birds of the Pacific Northwest (Portland, OR: Timber Press, 2017), 560 pp. 934 color photos, 3 illustrations, 357 range maps.
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.
