Vermont Birds: An Introduction to Familiar Species (Other)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Three quarters of Vermont is covered in forest, making the Green Mountain State a great place for observing and learning about birds. State bird Hermit Thrush sings its ethereal song in pine forests, while beach-maple forests host such stand-outs as Barred Owls, Wood Thrushes, and several breeding wood-warblers. Northerly spruce forests are home to Spruce Grouse and Black-backed Woodpeckers. Birds are often the entry point to nature study, so getting acquainted with the most familiar species is always useful. You can do this with the portable reference Vermont Birds, which is beautifully illustrated with 140 common birds 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 the perfect 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.
