Wild Birds of California
California is a great place for wild birds and the people who enjoy watching them! Over 600 bird species— about two-thirds of the birds found in North America—inhabit, migrate, or visit here. This lavishly photographed volume features usual and unusual birds in their wildland homes throughout California seashores, deserts, mountains, wetlands, foothills, valleys, and chaparral country.
Text by Northern California naturalist David Lukas examines the environmental history of birding in the Golden State. Extensive captions accompany more than 100 color photographs by some of California's premier bird photographers.
