This is the book that all of us in the Pacific Northwest have been waiting for. These authors have obviously spent countless hours researching and photographing the birds of our area, and have compiled their vast knowledge for the rest of us. I really appreciate the information not just on bird identification (which is very well done), but on behaviors, voices, habitats, status, and also where to find them. There is also good info to help us on the trickier bird IDs. The photography is phenomenal--Shewey and Blount have captured not just the look, but the personality and lifestyle of the birds in their pictures. This book is a must for all pacific northwesterners!
