Online Auction Description
Places To Go Birding Before You Die
Tabori & Chang
Imprint of HNA Harry Abrams Inc.
Hardcover with Dust Cover
It's estimated that 50 to 60 million Americans count birding
among their hobbies. Some hang feeders in their backyards and accumulate yard
lists; others participate in annual âChristmas Countsâ; a select few travel to
the ends of the earth in an effort to see every bird in the world. With Fifty
Places to Go Birding Before You Die, Chris Santella takes the best-selling
âFifty Placesâ recipe and applies it to this most popular pastime.
Santella presents some of the greatest bird-watching venues in the United
States and abroad through interviews with prominent birders, from tour leaders
and conservationists to ornithologists and academics. Interviewees include
ornithologist Kenn Kaufman; David Allen Sibley, author and illustrator of The
Sibley Guide to Birds; Rose Ann Rowlett, the âmother of modern birdingâ;
John Fitzpatrick, director of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology; and Steve
McCormick, president and CEO of The Nature Conservancy.
The places vary from the urban (New York Cityâs Central Park) to the mystical
(the cloud forests of Triunfo in Chiapas, Mexico) to the extremely remote (the
sub-Arctic islands of New Zealand). The book includes 40 gorgeous photographs
that capture the vibrancy of our feathered friends, and the beautiful places
they call home.
