Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Profiling a series of birdwatching excursions within reach of 35 major cities and population centers, Dolezal presents a practical rundown of road trips for bird-loving city-dwellers and those who may be visiting. Following a cleverly-designed table of contents that presents each jumping-off point (San Francisco, the Winnepeg Area, Boston to Cape Cod, etc.) on a regional map, Dolezal focuses in on urban centers across the U.S. and southern Canada with a similarly user-friendly approach. Scenic photographs and well-prepared maps accompany each stop-though anyone unfamiliar with a given area will want a supplementary road atlas-and descriptions of each excursion are both informative and mercifully brief. Certain cities in particular (e.g., Seattle) can be extremely confusing for travelers, but Dolezal includes the websites and street addresses of visitors' bureaus, park offices and information sources. The traveling birder will find this book very helpful when seeking sites in unfamiliar areas, though the volume's large size may make it too unwieldy to bring with.

Who wrote this? Feb. 19 2012
By David Karam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book has its purpose, but does not appear to be written by someone who is actually a birder. Beyond the frustrating technical errors that drive a nerd like me crazy, such as the "fowl in focus" boxes that call all birds fowl (I know the definition, but I have never met a birder who calls a swallow fowl), the book contains surprisingly few details about the actual locations such as times when specific species are best viewed or places where these species are most likely to be found. If you are going to a new region, have no local contacts, and are not proficient at using Google and Mapquest to find the birding hotspots then the vague descriptions of potential locations and very specific endless directions may be for you. Though the photos are good, they are often of birding locations rather than the birds you would see there. I'll keep it on my shelf in case I go somewhere new, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone except for those not proficient with other tools to search for birding locations.

The book never met my needs, it is a poor version of the original "Where the birds are" which trule listed everything you wanted to know about a hot spot.

This item was delivered quickly and the 2nd hand book was almost new though the paper itself shows its age after printing. Very good service.
Confusing Jan. 11 2013
By Peter A. Canavan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Confusing, out-of-date, and basically worthless. Do NOT buy this book. There are much better and better written books than this one.
