The Pacific Northwest is a great place for birding. You can find Western Grebes dancing on water, or hear the Pacific Wren's song cascade through a mossy forest. Must-See Birds of the Pacific Northwest is a lively, practical guide that helps readers discover 85 of the region's most extraordinary birds. Each bird profile includes notes on what they eat, where they migrate from, and where to find them in Washington and Oregon. Profiles also include stunning color photographs of each bird. Birds are grouped by what they are known for or where they are most likely to be found, like beach birds, urban birds, colorful birds, and killer birds.
Sarah Swanson and Max Smith met in graduate school when they were studying birds in the same lab, and they have been birding together ever since. With their dog, Andie, they split their time between Portland and Pacific City, Oregon. Sarah has worked as an environmental educator for the Audubon Society of Portland. She loves teaching adults and children about natural history by leading field trips and classes. Max is a wildlife biologist currently working with the US Forest Service. Since 2003, he has studied the mechanisms through which invasive plants and wildfire influence the reproductive success of birds.
