Washington state boasts an impressive diversity of birds, with over 500 species having been observed in the aptly named Evergreen State. The Pacific coast is rich in shorebirds and seabirds, while the mighty Cascade Mountains are home to coniferous forest species like Canada Jay, Gray-crowned Rosy-finch, and Clark's Nutcracker. The many lakes in the otherwise dry shrubby areas to the east of the mountains are magnets for waterfowl. State bird American Goldfinch can be found in grasslands and scrubby edges as well as near human habitation. Birds are often the entry point into nature study, so getting acquainted with an area's most representative species is useful. You can do this with the beautifully illustrated Washington State Birds, which features 140 illustrations of common and familiar species as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 bird-finding hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a terrific resource for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders who wish to sharpen their bird identification skills and peer more closely into birds' fascinating lives. Made in the USA.
