About the Book

From the bald eagle to the pileated woodpecker, the varied and abundant birdlife of the northwestern national parks is as impressive as the parks' dramatic scenery. To help both beginning and advanced birders make the most of their visits to these parks, Roland Wauer has written this finding guide, which introduces the most common birds and the most likely places to see them. The book opens with practical advice on getting started in birding--choosing binoculars, bird identification, proper field techniques, etc. Then after a concise discussion of the national parks as islands of bird habitat, the succeeding chapters fully describe each park, including its plant and animal communities and the facilities and interpretive activities available to visitors. Wauer takes readers on walks through each park's most popular and accessible places, where he explains the identification and behavior of the birds that visitors are most likely to see. He closes each account with a review of the park's bird life and a list of key species. Pen-and-ink drawings illustrate many of the birds.
About the Author: Roland H. Wauer, of Victoria, Texas, enjoyed a 32-year career as a National Park Service interpreter, biologist, and Chief of Resource Management. He is also the author of The American Robin, A Birder's West Indies: An Island-by-Island Tour, and For All S
