Great year-round birding, grand scenery, and a bird list that includes some of the most sought-after and beautiful birds in all of North America – these were the inspirations for Jim Lane when he wrote the first Lane Guide in 1965. Three decades later, Richard Cachor Taylor, a near-lifetime resident of South-eastern Arizona, bird-tour guide, and author, completed a totally revised edition of that first guide in the Lane series. And now, Rick has authored a second edition of his essential guide to South-eastern Arizona, which includes:
• Expanded bar graphs, keyed to habitats, with seasonal and abundance information for 514 species.
• The annotated 'specialties' section, a Lane Guide hallmark, provides information on the best places to find over 240 of the most interesting birds of SE Arizona.
• Maps, directions, and birding tips for the newest birding hotspots, as well as complete updates of the maps from the first edition.
Rick brings a wealth of field experience and boundless enthusiasm for this priceless corner of Arizona to the guide. His attention to detail provides a complete picture of the opportunities awaiting birders in South-eastern Arizona. 384 pages.
