Product description

Product Description

Birding is one of the fastest-growing hobbies in North America—one in five Canadians enjoy identifying, photographing or filming birds. With easy access to coastal mountains, marshes and mudflats of the Fraser delta, temperate rainforest, and rocky shores of the Pacific Ocean, the Vancouver area is a wonderful destination for birdwatchers. Of the 450 species found in Canada, over 400 can be seen in the Lower Mainland.

Now expanded with all-new colour maps and more than 100 additional colour photographs, this guide explores thirty-three local birding areas that attract significant numbers of species throughout the year. Each area has a description, brand new walking map and information on the seasonal variations in species. Driving directions are also included.

Information is also organized by species, and the final two sections of the book include graphs of the seasonal status of local birds as well as tips on where to find certain sought-after species at different times of the year.

Compiled by local experts, The Birder's Guide to Vancouver and the Lower Mainland has long been considered the bible for Vancouver-area birdwatchers and essential reading for visiting and local bird enthusiasts alike—and it's now better than ever.

About the Author

In 2018, Nature Vancouver (previously known as Vancouver Natural History Society) is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The founding goals of the VNHS were to enjoy, study and protect nature in Vancouver and throughout BC as well as to provide education for its members and the public. Activities include habitat restoration, the Christmas Bird Count, Raptor Survey, Coast Bird Survey and the Wildlife Tree Stewardship program. Many of the approximate 750 Nature Vancouver members participated in the creation of Parks and Nature Places Around Vancouver, The Birder's Guide to Vancouver and the Lower Mainland (Revised and Expanded Edition) and Wilderness on the Doorstep: Discovering Nature in Stanley Park.
