"The Birds of The Mid-Atlantic, is a quick and easy to use, light-weight, durable, all-weather (important here) field guide to the inspiring, incredibly varied and colorful birdlife inhabiting the populous Mid-Atlantic States stretching between the Carolinas and New England. Stunning digital photographs depict 130 species of common and notable birds, enabling users to identify nearly every bird they encounter—day or night—within the guide’s impressive area of coverage—which, despite the name, is not limited to the Atlantic seaboard, but rather extends well inland from coastal Maryland, and Delaware, across the Appalachian Mountains to the western extremities of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. Whether you’re seeking flurries of migratory and wintering waterfowl and shorebirds at Brigantine National Wildlife Refuge or chasing colorful spring migrants at Cape May, in New Jersey; on a quest to view the awe-inspiring river of raptors that passes over aptly-named Hawk Mountain, Pennsylvania, each spring and fall; scoping Red Knots at Delaware Bay; birding far-flung historic and national parks in Williamsburg, Virginia, or our Nation’s Capital; the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland; Niagara Falls in Upstate New York; or combining birding with sightseeing or business at any season, you’ll be glad to have this booklet. Designed to satisfy the needs of birders of all interest levels—but especially beginning and intermediate users trying to “make sense of it all”—this beautiful and amazingly informative six-fold guide will be an indispensable companion for visitors and residents alike on all outings in the region. This affordable guide will serve as a lasting memento of any Mid-Atlantic trip and will conveniently fit into any daypack, pocket or glove-compartment, facilitating easy field identification—whether taking a leisurely stroll within Central Park, New York, on a family vacation, or a serious birding trip visiting all the best birding hot spots in this seven state area."
