Cancelled: National Audubon Society Guides to Birds and Trees of North America: Discussion of New Editions
This event has been cancelled and will be re-scheduled for a later date
Reads & Company, in conjunction with the Valley Forge Audubon Society, is happy to celebrate the brand new and expanded editions of National Audubon Society Birds of North America and the National Audubon Society Trees of North America! We will be joined by a special guest from the National Audubon Society for what should be a great conversation about these landmark updates to the Guides. Vince Smith, President of the Valley Forge Audubon Society, will lead the discussion.
Developed by the creators of the best-selling Audubon field guides, this handsome volume is the result of a collaboration among leading scientists, scholars, taxonomic and field experts, photo editors, and designers. An indispensable reference, it covers more than 800 species, with over 3,500 full-color photographs of birds in their natural habitat, often with four or five images of each species. For ease of use, the book includes a glossary, an index, and a ribbon marker, and is arranged according to the American Ornithological Society’s latest Checklist of North and Middle American Birds–with birds sorted by taxonomic orders and grouped by family, so that related species are presented together. Range maps, reflecting the impact of climate change, accompany nearly every entry, along with a physical description and information on voice, nesting, habitat, and similar species. This guide also includes an important new category on conservation status and essays by leading scholars in each field who provide holistic insights into the world of birds.
