Where to Watch Birds in World Cities (Paperback)
Yale University Press, 9780300116915, 496pp.
Publication Date: December 1, 2006
Entries for each of the sixty cities provide an introduction to the city and detailed information on major bird-watching sites, including lists of typical summer and winter bird residents and migrants and directions for getting to the sites using public transportation. The book is illustrated throughout with maps and attractive line drawings. In no way a replacement for detailed guides to specific cities or regions, this book instead fills an important gap for travelers whose birding, though done on short notice, can nevertheless prove delightful. Some cities included in this guide: Milan Toronto Mexico City Tokyo Los Angeles Taipei Lima Singapore Kampala Shanghai Hong Kong Dublin Copenhagen Seattle Chicago San Francisco Caracas Rome Cape Town Rio Buenos Aires Paris Boston New York Berlin New Delhi Zurich Amsterdam Nairobi Warsaw
