Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 44 chapters in Birding Oregon describe over 200 birding sites and include samples from all the major ecoregions in Oregon. All sites listed in the book meet three criteria: They offer consistently good birding, are located on public land or on land open to the birding public, and are accessible in a normal passenger car.

The Checklist includes 502 species of birds that have been found in Oregon and charts their seasonal abundance. Detailed contact information is provided for federal, state, and local agencies; conservation and birding organizations; and birding guide services throughout the state. A 20-page Birding Oregon Atlas provides route information for finding the sites.

About the Author

Before turning to birding full time, John Rakestraw took jobs as a music teacher, farm laborer, and hardware salesman to pay for his birding habit. He worked as a naturalist in Kansas and Ohio before finally settling in Oregon. Rakestraw writes articles for birding and nature publications, teaches classes, leads field trips, and works as a guide.
