Birds of Northern California

Birds of Northern California Cover

This is one book you can judge by its cover. From the gorgeous front illustration of a Great Horned Owl with wings and talons extended, to the back coverís table of color keys for quick sorting of bird groups, this is a beautiful and cleverly designed guide. The technically proficient but breezy text by David Fix and Andy Bezener is complemented by bird portraits in finely detailed color. Easy to use for beginners, yet valuable and entertaining for experts, this book makes a fine addition to a daypack, a terrific gift for any nature-lover.
