Volume 4, Passerines, Wood-Warblers through Old-World Sparrows
From the back cover of the dust jacket -----
This much-awaited final volume of The Birds of British Columbia completes what some have called one of the most important regional ornithological works in North America. It is the culmination of more than 25 years of effort by the authors who, with the assistance of thousands of dedicated volunteers throughout the province, have created the basic reference work on the avifauna of British Columbia.
Volume 4 covers the last half of the passerines and describes 102 species, including the wood-warblers, sparrows, grosbeaks, blackbirds, and finches.
The text builds upon the authoritative format of the previous volumes and is supported by hundreds of full-colour illustrations, including detailed distribution maps, unique habitat shots, and beautiful photographs of the birds, their nests, eggs, and young. In addition, a species update lists and describes 27 species of birds with new distribution or, breeding information since the first three volumes were published. The book concludes with a synopsis that synthesizes data and information from all four volumes and looks, at conservation challenges facing birds in the new millennium.
The four volumes in The Birds of British Columbia provide unprecedented coverage of the region’s birds, presenting a wealth of information on the ornithological history, regional environment, habitat, breeding habits, migratory movements, seasonality, and distribution patterns of 484 species of birds. It is the complete reference work for birdwatchers, ornithologists, biologists, and naturalists.
