Birds, birds, birds! Each chapter in this book is dedicated to a location ideal for bird watching recommended by an expert. There are lovely photographs.

Respected and well-known birders/naturalists provided us with their perspective on many of the "then" best places to bird. Now it's time for the author to do a "More of . . ." sequel. After eight years since its publication, the pastime of birding has grown exponentially and there are many more excellent and accessible birding sites to explore. I look forward to reading more about them from the experts!
