A bird guide for everyone:

Large photos combined with clear and concise bird descriptions make this book the perfect entry point to learning more about our common neighborhood birds. Each of the 110 bird species found in the book has distinguishing field marks pointed out in addition to some fun facts and observations.
Similar birds are grouped so that it is easy to look back and forth and study their differences.

Neighborhood Birders:

Neighborhood Birding 101 is for you if you want to learn to identify common birds of the West Coast.

When compiling my list of birds I focused on those most frequently sighted west of the Cascade Range from Canada all the way down to Eureka, California.

I focused on birds found in parks, fields, ponds and small wooded neighborhood areas.

This guide will help you identify all the birds that come to your feeders or that you see on your neighborhood walks.

“My young son is eagerly anticipating the book. He has me show him your latest id guides every morning before school.” – Emily Crossen Page
