Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book I bought this book because I moved to the interior of BC and wanted to know what birds I will see that I didn't on the coast. Fantastic photos

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.
