From Canada’s top birding team comes the definitive guide to finding birds in British Columbia.
Veteran naturalist and birdfinder Richard Cannings and his son, Russell, a gifted birder in his own right, use their combined knowledge and expertise to guide readers to the best birding sites in the province. The book is divided into eleven regions, from Vancouver Island to the Far North, providing bird lovers with detailed information about how to reach the best sites to look for birds, when to look for them, and what they might find.
Packed with descriptions of the natural history, ecosystems, and diverse landscapes of British Columbia and accompanied by numerous maps, this thorough guide is enhanced by Donald Gunn’s charming line drawings and the authors’ infectious enthusiasm, making it a must-have for novice and expert birders alike.

Richard Cannings works as a consulting biologist assessing endangered species and organizing broad-scale bird population surveys. He teaches field ecology at the University of British Columbia and was curator of the Cowan Vertebrate Museum at the university for fifteen years. He is the author of Flights of Imagination and An Enchantment of Birds.
Growing up in the Cannings family, it was easy for Russell Cannings to develop an appreciation for birds. In 2010, he set a new B.C. record for birds seen in one year (373 species), and in 2012, Maclean's named him Canada's top birder. He works as a field biologist.
"Written in a very approachable tone ...Maps and excellent drawings of birds are liberally sprinkled through the book, breaking up the text and enlivening the presentation. ...The depth and breadth of information this guide presents, much of it never before available to the birding public, is stunning. The authors are to be commended for undertaking such a monumental task"— American Birding Association blog
