Birds of British Columbia: A Photographic Journey

Birds of British Columbia: A Photographic Journey

by Glenn Bartley




More species of birds breed in British Columbia annually than anywhere else in Canada. Additionally, hundreds of migratory birds spend a portion of the year here, making BC a birdwatcher’s paradise. It doesn’t matter if you’re a gung-ho, out-in-the-field birdwatcher or if you enjoy winged friends from the serenity of your back porch, Birds of British Columbia is an easy way to get the best views of more than 100 of the different birds in this province.

From the rare Marbled Murrelet to the common Steller’s Jay, ferocious falcons to timid towhees, Glenn Bartley has captured the beauty of BC’s feathered fliers in this stunning collection of photographs. Whether you’re looking for an elusive Boreal Owl or simply want to revel in the magnificence of a swooping Peregrine Falcon, Bartley’s incredible photographs of birds in their natural habitats will make even the ubiquitous gull look extraordinary.
