Publisher Comments:

At the end of the twentieth century roughly 265 million people visited the 374 sites in the American National Park System. These places, designated and protected because of their significance to our nationand#8217;s historical and natural heritage, contain some of the most beautiful landscapes in the United Statesand#151;landscapes that naturally lend themselves to outdoor recreation.

In this book, veteran parks interpreter Ro Wauer introduces the pleasures of birding in the national parks of the American Southwest. From California to Texas, from hugely popular destinations such as Arizonaand#8217;s Grand Canyon to the mostly undiscovered shores of Amistad National Recreation Area, Wauer visits seventeen sites and gives us his advice on what birds to expect to see and where and how to find them.

Written by a birder for birders, this book introduces readers to some of the best birding north of the Mexican border, as well as some of the most impressive scenery anywhere. Wauer takes readers on a personal tour, pointing out where to go to see a vast array of each parkand#8217;s bird life: Le Conteand#8217;s Thrashers in Death Valley, Clarkand#8217;s and Western Grebes at Lake Mead, Phainopeplas at Organ Pipe Cactus, Lucyand#8217;s Warblers at Saguaro, Peregrine Falcons in Grand Canyon, Cave Swallows at Carlsbad Caverns, Magnificent Hummingbirds at Guadalupe Mountains, and Colima Warblers in Big Bend.
