Delaware Birds: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Species (Pocket Naturalist Guide) (Paperback)
The First State is nestled along the Atlantic flyway, making it a bird migration hotspot. Large congregations of waterfowl, wood-warblers, and shorebirds can be seen at various times of the year and often in phenomenal numbers. There are also about 170 breeding birds to go along with the annual migrants. Sifting through such a diverse assemblage of species is challenging, so it helps to have a portable reference to the most common species to use as a starting point. The beautifully illustrated collection Delaware Birds features 140 familiar species as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 birding hotspots. Laminated for durability, this 12-panel folding pocket guide is the perfect companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders who wish to identify Delaware's birds and develop a deeper understanding of the fascinating lives they lead. Made in the USA.
