Arkansas Birds: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Species (Pocket Naturalist Guide) (Other)
This is the long, catalog/marketing description of the product.With varied terrain and half of the state covered in forest, Arkansas -- the Natural State -- is rich in avian diversity. Sifting through the more than 400 bird species that are permanent residents, breeders, or annual migrants is a challenging task, but the beautifully illustrated Arkansas Birds offers a handy collection of 140 species you are most likely to encounter. Especially useful is the ecoregion map on the back panel showing over 20 birding hotspots. Laminated for durability, this 12-sided folding pocket guide is an excellent companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders who wish to identify Arkansas's birds and forge a deeper and more meaningful relationship with them. Made in the USA.
