Idaho Birds: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Species (Pocket Naturalist Guide) (Other)
The varied and often rugged terrain throughout Idaho make for excellent bird-finding opportunities in the Gem State, where over 400 species are either permanent residents, regular breeders, or annual migrants. These include such stand-outs as Long-billed Curlew, Lewis's Woodpecker, White-faced Ibis, and state bird Mountain Bluebird. For those keen to deepen their connection with Idaho's shrub- and grass- covered plains, volcanic plateaus, wetlands, and forested mountains, birds serve as an ideal entry point. It helps, then, to have a starting point such as the portable collection Idaho Birds. It has beautiful illustrations of 140 common and familiar species as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 birding hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, thus 12-panel folding pocket guide is the perfect companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders who wish to sharpen their bird ID skills and peer more closely into the fascinating lives of Hawaii's birds. Made in the USA.
