Birding New England
Birdwatching is for everyone. No other outdoor pursuit yields so much knowledge of nature's ways with so little effort--if one knows what to look for. Birding New England opens the world of birding to the novice and expert in this complete guide to getting the most out of birding in New England.
Birding New England includes a section on birding technology and features detailed advice on equipment, identification techniques, birding "by ear," field guides, optics, and other essentials to get the beginner into the field quickly to identify birds throughout New England. Especially valuable are descriptions of bird behaviors including feeding, flight, courting and breeding, nesting, and migration--informing the reader not only about what kind of bird is on the other end of the binoculars, but what it is up to as well. Most important, this book provides information on where to view each bird species, helping readers plan a trip to New England around selected hot spots where the most desired birds are most often found.
