A concise full-colour guide to the common and not-so-common birds that can be seen across Nova Scotia
Birdwatching expeditions are becoming more and more popular and Nova Scotia is an internationally recognized destination for birding opportunities.
This book introduces 200 of the top species found all around the province, at the seashore, in the Cape Breton Highlands, the city parks and around the thousands of pristine lakes in the province.
Whether observing spectacular hawks or eagles in the wild or seabirds over the ocean, listening for warblers in the forest, or 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. They also show habitat preference egg (for in-province breeding species) months the bird can be seen in the area preferred bird feeder type.
The birding hotspot section (with an accompanying map) shows 46 locations across the province where good birdwatching is assured.
The New Formac Pocketguide to Nova Scotia Birds is a worthy successor to Jeff Domm's very popular Pocketguide to Nova Scotia Birds. It is a handy reference for beginners and a useful local guide for practised birders.
