Birdwatching (Discovery Travel)
Following an essay on birdwatching in general and a detailed section on preparing for the field, this guide takes would-be and experienced birders from Bonaventure Island in Quebec to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, with trips to Acadia National Park in Maine, Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, Kenai Peninsula in Alaska, Big Bend National Park in Texas, and even Central Park in New York City. The book offers many spectacular photos, from fuzzy speckled tern chicks floating on lily pads to a Florida scrub jay, contemplating a reading birder while perched atop the man's guidebook. As a joint publication of Insight Guides and Discovery Communication, these guides take you to places all over the world that are ideal for stimulating a passion for nature. Stuffed with brilliant color photographs and maps, the guides provide a wealth of itineraries in various states or countries, with evocative essays and sidebars on specific topics. A destination guide points you toward the most rewarding sites within a region, and the book provides necessary background information and travel tips.
