A Bird-Finding Guide to Ontario has been the indispensable guide for Ontario birders since it was first published in 1982. With this completely revised and greatly expanded edition the reader will now have, in one volume, complete, up-to-date information on where and when to look for birds, and detailed information on the distribution of all species recorded in the province.
Ontario offers a host of opportunities for the bird watcher. More than 450 species of birds have been found in the province, and at least 285 have nested. From southern deciduous woodlands to Arctic coastline, this guide presents precise directions on where birds are found, emphasizing the most popular and productive localities, but also citing numerous little-known locales that will delight aficionado and novice alike. County maps show the locations of the areas covered. Additional, more detailed maps supplement the text.
Goodwin supplies valuable information on the province as a whole and the habitats contained within. He lists common breeding birds one can expect to encounter, and describes seasonal weather conditions and migration patterns and the most productive kinds of birding to be found. The book concludes with special information for visitors to the province. An extensive index provides easy access to the guide.
