This book comprises a helpful pocket guide to the land birds common to New England. The outcome of the author's long experience in teaching college women to study the birds common to this area, this handy text omits nearly all of the rarer birds that the beginner is unlikely to come across. A great introduction to New England ornithology, this text constitutes the perfect addition to collections of ornithological literature and is sure to appeal to those with an interest in the birds of the area. The chapters contained in this book include: Thrushes, Kinglets, Chickadee, Brown Creeper, Wrens, Wood-Warblers, Greenlets, Shrike, Swallows, Scarlet Tanager, Sparrows and Finches, Blackbirds, Crow and Jay, Flycatchers, Hummingbird, Chimney Swift, Woodpeckers, Cuckoos, Sandpipers, et cetera.
