I'm very honored to have my photo of a singing Western Meadowlark, (one of my favourite birds) adorning the cover of the new book " Best Places to Bird In The Prairies " by Alan Roy Smith, John Acorn and Nicola Koper
I also have photos inside, plus there are great photos from other birders from each Province covered in the book.
In Best Places to Bird in the Prairies, three of Canada’s top birders
reveal their favourite destinations for spotting local birds in Alberta,
Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. They
highlight thirty-six of the region’s most highly recommended sites, each
of which has been expertly selected for the unique species that reside
there. With exclusive lists of specialty birds, splendid color
photography, and plenty of insider tips for finding and identifying
birdlife year-round, the book is accessible and easy-to-use—an
indispensable resource that will inspire both novice and seasoned
birders to put on their walking shoes, grab their binoculars, and start
The book is available now from all good booksellers, and is highly recommended.
