Overview

Virginia is a great place to observe and learn about birds, owing to its varied topography and mix of different ecosystems, which range from high-altitude Appalachian peaks to coastal marshes. Almost two thirds of the state is forested with verdant hardwoods, making Virginia attractive to both breeding and migratory songbirds. Lowland swamp forests are prime nesting grounds for luminous Prothonotary Warblers as well as richly colored Wood Ducks. Coastal wetlands are magnets for waterfowl, sandpipers, plovers, and other wading birds. Appalachian forests host various wood-warblers, and numerous alpine ridges lie along major raptor migration pathways. Over 500 bird species have been recorded in Virginia, a number that can feel overwhelming at times. It helps, then, to have a portable reference on hand to cut through the clutter and focus on a smaller group of representative species. You can do this with the beautifully illustrated Virginia Birds, which features illustrations of 140 common and familiar species as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 bird-finding hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the perfect resource for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders who wish to sharpen their bird identification skills and peer more closely into birds' fascinating lives.
