Birding New England

A Field Guide to the Birds of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont

Book Description

Birdwatching is for everyone. No other outdoor pursuit yields so much knowledge of nature’s ways with so little effort—if one knows what to look for. Birding New England opens the world of birding to the novice and expert in this complete guide to getting the most out of birding in New England. Birding New England includes sections on birding technology, equipment, identification techniques, birding “by ear,” where to view birds, field guides, optics, and other essentials to get birders of all skill levels into the field to identify birds throughout New England. Especially valuable are descriptions of habitat, feeding, nesting, and migration—informing the reader not only about what kind of bird is on the other end of the binoculars, but what it is up to as well.



Includes:

  • GPS coordinates for each species of the top three to five locations where you’re likely to see the bird and what time of year is best for this
  • Full-color photos
  • Over 300 species
