Birds of Golden Gate Park: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Species (Pocket Naturalist Guide) (Other)
Located along the Pacific Flyway, the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California is a prime location for observing birds and learning about their behavior. Over 250 species have been recorded in this popular urban park that includes beaches, mudflats, marshes, lakes, coastal chapparal, redwood forests, and Live Oak woodlands. Shorebirds and waterfowl are especially prominent at the height of migration, and there's always a chance of seeing an endangered California Condor. This beautifully illustrated guide features 140 common and familiar species, as well as map of the park. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a terrific resource for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders who want to sharpen their identification skills and peer more closely into the fascinating lives of birds at Golden Gate Park. Made in the USA.
