Summary

The American Southwest boasts an astonishing variety of bird species, including many which can be found nowhere else in North America. This makes the region a mecca for serious and casual bird lovers alike. Birds of the American Southwest describes and depicts, with full-color photographs, eighty-six important species that make their homes in this remarkably diverse region of deserts, grasslands, riparian areas, and sky island mountain ranges. To help readers identify these birds in the wild, noted authority and author Lynn Hassler Kaufman includes information about preferred habitats, distinctive markings, and characteristic behaviors specific to each species.
