"Generously illustrated with 350 color photographs, this comprehensive guide to regional birds and their behavior will quickly earn a prominent place n the bookshelf of every bird-watcher in the Carolinas"--Living in South Carolina
"An invitation to all bird-watchers and sportsmen who are ready to 'pass from bird identification to bird study' of virtually any species likely to be found in the Carolinas. The new edition adds dozens of birds recently recorded in the region as well as new places to see birds, revisions in troublesome bird taxonomy, and updates from the conservation front. Trusted regional Web sites are also listed--essential for updating the kind of information this reference presents. Far from being one in a series of knock-off regional bird books, Birds of the Carolinas contains the collective experience of the bird study community of the Carolinas. The authors have monitored reported observations of the region's bird life for many decades, and the volume has the homey feel of a bird club meeting where scholars and laymen share their observations of and passion for birds."--Margaret Martin, editor, Wildlife in North Carolina
