San Diego County Bird Atlas
Diego County Bird Atlas addresses all the county's birds--wintering
birds, migrants, and exotics as well as breeding birds. Each species
account covers breeding distribution, nesting habits and schedule,
migration, winter distribution, conservation outlook, and taxonomy,
if relevant. The accounts include a chart showing the seasonal
distribution of the nesting activity of each nesting species; they
have at least one map for every regular breeding and wintering
species. 645 pages with 468 color photographs, illustrating 89%
of the 527 species covered.
Written by Philip Unitt, Curator for the Department
of Birds and Mammals at the San Diego Natural History Museum since
1988, and consultant to numerous public agencies and private firms.
