Scott & Nix, Inc. and the American Birding Association (ABA) announce the publication of the 14th title in the ABA State Field Guide Series — the American Birding Association Field Guide to Birds of Oregon. This series of ABA guides will ultimately be published in all 50 states and several Canadian provinces.
Dave Irons, the author of this Oregon field guide, will be at Nye Beach Book House on Sunday, Dec. 9, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., to talk about the book and sign copies. Nye Beach Book House is located at 727 NW Third St. in Newport.
Written for beginning to intermediate birders, these rugged and portable guides focus on the most common birds found in the title state. Large color images with captions, habitat and behavior information and conservation text combine to give birders the essential information they need to identify each type of bird.
Oregon’s nearly 100,000 square miles encompass a wide variety of wildlife habitats — coastal dunes, estuaries, mixed conifer forests, wetlands, grasslands, pine and oak woodlands and high desert. National wilderness and recreation areas, state parks, hundreds of county and city parks, plus green urban and suburban settings combine to provide ideal areas for birds and birding. The diversity and majesty of Oregon’s ecological habitats make the Beaver State one of the best places to see birds year-round in the U.S. From geese to grosbeaks, owls to warblers, grouse to waxwings, Oregon is truly a birder’s paradise.
