Pacific flyway : waterbird migration from the Arctic to Tierra del Fuego  Cover Image Book Book

Pacific flyway : waterbird migration from the Arctic to Tierra del Fuego / Audrey Delella Benedict, Geoffrey A. Hammerson, Robert W. Butler.

Summary:

"I have been investigating publishing a book about the Pacific Flyway in the mode of The Salish Sea: a beautifully visual book with highly informed text. There is a surprising dearth of books about the Pacific Flyway, despite its prominence as a subject on the Audubon website. Awareness of the flyway would give any birdwatcher an advantage in seeing the greatest numbers of birds. The Pacific Flyway encompasses the great swath of territory from the Arctic to southern South America that supports the migrations of many bird varieties. Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California figure prominently in the flyway"-- Provided by publisher.
