What is the fastest-growing outdoor activity in the U.S.? Snowboarding? Mountain biking? No. It's bird watching! There are currently 51.3 million dedicated birders in the U.S. with their binoculars focused on the skies. Sure to appeal to this growing flock, 100 Birds to See Before You Die is the ultimate birdwatcher's book.* Selected by two world-renowned birding authors, the top 100 birds include avian species that are endangered, exceptional common species, and others that have achieved legendary status.* You won't need binoculars to spot the huge and powerful, endangered Philippine Eagle or the brightly plumed Andean Cock-of-the-Rock. Each of the 100 featured species is captured in remarkable full-color photographs in their natural habitat.* This fascinating book combines hard-working detail with more unusual facts and anecdotes that have passed into birding mythology, making it much more than a typical bird watching book.* Detailed entries describe that natural history and significance of each bird with useful summary information including size, distribution, habitat, classification, population and conservation status.
