Description
A unique and essential resource for bird enthusiasts as well as conservationists, this book organizes the United States into 36 ornithologically distinct bird regions, then identifies and profiles 500 sites within these regions. Each entry includes ornithological highlights, ownership information, a description of habitats and land use, a guide to which species one can expect to find, conservation issues, and visitor information. The book also features color maps and drawings throughout.

"This landmark book is indispensable for conservationists, ornithologists, and birders alike."—Kenn Kaufman

"Birders will recognize many of their favorite haunts in the important bird areas listed here.... This book puts each site in a global context, and also provides an overview of the practical issues and challenges of bird conservation in the 21st century.... A book that every birder (and nature lover and land manager) should read and discuss."—David Allen Sibley

"A must-read for all birders that will open their eyes to the critical significance of preserving these globally important bird areas. The very future of our bird populations depend on it."—Donald and Lillian Stokes
