This is a must for novice and advanced birders. This book, by the members of The Brooks Bird Club, Inc., is the first guide to finding birds exclusively in the Mountain State. The book describes forty-seven of the best birding sites. Over fifty top bird watchers in West Virginia participated in describing where to go and what birds are likely to be found in each region. Novice birders will use this book to identify expected birds in the areas. Advance birders will use this reference book to locate specific species. The book details travel information with maps and lists bird species known in each habitat. Other features are a checklist of the state's birds, a list of noteworthy plants by region and phone numbers of volunteers who are willing to answer questions.
With his stories about nature and state history spanning more than 40 years, J. Lawrence Smith was Wonderful West Virginia’s most enduring writer. Whether he told of the magnificence of an ancient spruce forest, the heyday of bateaus on the New River, or the poignant loss of the Bewick’s wren, John engaged readers with his wealth of knowledge and his lyrical prose. His deep love of nature, especially birds, continues to inspire us, as it shines through the pages of this volume.
