The Birds of Vancouver Island’s West Coast

Now in paperback, the definitive guide to birding in Vancouver.

The rugged physical beauty of the west coast of Vancouver Island has long been a major attraction, but its distinctive avian population has also made it a major birdwatching destination. The Birds of Vancouver Island’s West Coast presents accounts of all of the species thus far recorded as occurring in the region – 360 in total – and updates the 231 species recorded up to 1978. Each account includes a brief introduction to the species and an overview of its total range. The essential guide to the birds of the region, this book will inform, delight, and surprise amateur and professional birders alike.
