Description

This easy-to-use, concise, informative guide is a must for anyone who wants to leave behind Southern California's noisy freeways and crowded beaches in search of the wild places where birds can be found.

Features include: 120 superb color plates and lifelike habitat drawings that depict birds in their natural surroundings; sixteen maps show numerous birding sites accompanied by detailed directions; species accounts include information on the abundance and seasonal status of each bird and give intriguing natural history details; and, introductory sections describe the coastal habitats of Southern California, provide tips for beginning birdwatchers, and discuss the basics of bird behavior.
