Recommendations for May, 2001
Thayer's Birds of North America CD-ROM
This is the #1 rated birding CD-ROM. Covered are 925 birds found in the U.S. and Canada. Zoom in on 3,100 color photographs, showing the male, female, and juveniles of almost every species. Listen to over 1200 songs, calls, and chip notes from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. See side-by-side comparisons. Identify a bird even if you do not know its name! Over 250 quizzes. Includes the entire contents of The Birder's Handbook.
Bausch & Lomb Elite PC 8x42
This is one of the most popular fieldglasses among professional guides because of its rugged durability and focus range from 6' to infinity! Watch anything from butterflies to bears with these nitrogen purged, waterproof models. That means the 8x42 Elite can go anywhere in any conditions. Eyeglass wearers will appreciate the 21mm of eye relief, too. Field of view is 368'/1000 yards. Weighs 29 ounces. Includes limited lifetime warranty, carry case and neckstrap.
Arcata Marsh/Humbolt Bay
Featured Hot Spot:
Boreal species of the north can be found in upper
Michigan. Whitefish Point Bird Observatory (located just north of Paradise) is especially
active this time of year as migration reaches the frozen northland. Watch for huge flocks
of raptors and waterfowl.
Birder's Exchange is a wonderful program that collects and distributes equipment and books to benefit bird conservation, education and research in Central and South America and the Caribbean. You can help by donating your old binoculars and field guides. These are given to researchers, local park rangers and others that do not have the proper equipment to study the birds. Birder's Exchange is a joint project of the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences and the American Birding Association.
