Rated 3 out of 5 by from Met our bird watching needs We have been spending quite a bit of time in the hills surrounding Penticton. We wanted a book that could help us identify the many beautiful birds we have spotted. We chose this guide because it has actual photos of birds instead of sketches. So far we have been very satisfied with our purchase.
