Summary "From the distinctive Mountain Quail and Great Gray Owl to the seemingly indistinguishable small brown birds, the Sierra Nevada is alive with flapping, soaring, hopping, perching, swooping, twittering, squawking, and hooting bird life. Here is a brilliantly illustrated, thoroughly annotated, and uniquely arranged guide that anyone -- with or without formal training -- can use to identify birds in the Sierra Nevada, from the Feather River in the north through Sequoia National Park in the south. And it will fit in your back pocket. Book jacket."--Jacket.
