Bird Finding Guide to Western Massachusetts is an essential resource for locating birds from the marshes of western Worcester County to the peaks of the Berkshires. Fifty-two local birders collaborated to produce this practical guide that features stunning original illustrations by Andrew Finch Magee and bar charts showing seasonal abundance.
The guide's 83 site accounts and 85 maps cover the other massachusetts, the less-populated region bounded by New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Vermont. In addition to well-known birding locations such as the 56,000 acre Quabbin Resevoir area and the boreal forest of 3,491-foot Mount Greylock, dozens of lesser known but equally productive and beautiful sites are covered. A list of conservatino resources provides contacts for learning about and helping to preserve the natural heritage of Western Massachusetts.
