National Geographic Guide to Birding Hot Spots of the United States, boasting more than 220 full-color illustrations and maps, is the perfect practical companion to the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America. Each section begins with an overview map covering several states and showing major roads and hotspots. Next, each state has separate close-up maps that identify national and state parks, bird sanctuaries, nature trails, and many other prime birding locations. Entries give clear directions to major sites along with notes on the birds you’re likely to see there, the best seasons and time of day to see them, and frequent sidebars on subjects of particular interest. Each state entry closes with a list of additional key places complete with specific contact information. Finally a comprehensive index cross-references each bird with every site where it can be found.
