Birdwatching is popular among residents and visitors in Nova Scotia, and the province is an internationally recognized destination for birding.

This book offers detailed listings on 200 of the top species found all around the province, at the seashore, in the Cape Breton Highlands, in city parks and around the thousands of pristine lakes in the province.

Whether observing spectacular hawks in the wild or seabirds over the ocean, listening for warblers in the forest or spotting the first spring birds at the feeder, this guide is designed to allow for quick and easy identification. Original full-colour illustrations by Jeffrey Domm show prominent features that birdwatching enthusiasts can use to identify a species. Text and graphic keys give helpful tips for observing, including:

  • habitat preference
  • egg identification (for in-province breeding species)
  • months the bird can be seen in the area
  • preferred bird feeder types

The guide also includes a handy visual index, grouped by bird size and distinctive coloration, to help novice birdwatchers easily identify an unknown species. The birding hotspot section (with accompanying map) shows 46 locations across the province where good birdwatching is assured.

Previously titled The New Formac Pocketguide to Nova Scotia Birds, this book is both a handy reference for beginners and a useful local guide for practised birders.
