Bird Book Review
More than 300 species of birds have been reported from the Blue Ridge Mountain province, an area stretching from south-central Pennsylvania to northern Georgia. This book describes the region's birds and tells birdwatchers where to go to find them. It is a valuable resource for vacationers and casual birders as well as for serious birdwatchers and professional zoologists.
