One of the many pleasures of birding involves not only watching but listening—to the trill of a warbler, the sad coo of the Mourning Dove, or the clear warble of the House Finch. Even in urban areas, a surprising variety of songbirds (and other fascinating species) may be encountered by a watchful observer. This exceptionally compact guide will help you identify many western songbirds and other familiar backyard birds and learn more about their habits. In addition, you’ll find tips on birding technique, identification skills, and attracting birds, as well as notes on bird conservation and more.
The region covered extends roughly from the Pacific Ocean east to the Great Plains. The companion volume to eastern birds covers species east of this.
