About this item
What is the fastest-growing outdoor activity in the North America? Snowboarding? Mountain biking? No. It's bird watching! There are currently 51.3 million dedicated birders in the U.S. with their binoculars focused on the skies. Sure to appeal to this growing flock, 100 Birds to See Before You Die is the ultimate birdwatcher's book. You won't need binoculars to spot the huge and powerful, endangered Philippine Eagle or the brightly plumed Andean Cock-of-the-Rock.
Each of the 100 featured species is captured in remarkable full-colour photographs in their natural habitat. Selected by two world-renowned birding authors, the top 100 birds include avian species that are endangered, exceptional common species, and others that have achieved legendary status. This fascinating book combines hard-working detail with more unusual facts and mythological anecdotes, making it much more than a typical bird watching book. Detailed entries describe the natural history of each bird, including size, distribution, habitat, classification, population and conservation status.
