Our Recommendations for March, 2002
Voices of New World Parrots
Parrots are one of the most threatened bird groups in the world. This three-CD audio guide, Voices of New World Parrots, presents the characteristic sounds of virtually all of the New World parrots. Covering some 140 species, as well as many distinctive forms, the guide features a wide range of vocal signals and includes as many call types for each species as are available.
Bird Track & Sign
Observant nature-lovers can discover which birds are where by examining tracks, trails, and a variety of bird sign: discarded feathers, feeding leftovers, caches, pellets, nests, droppings, and skulls and bones. This fully illustrated guide presents thorough and straightforward instruction for identifying bird families or individual species by careful examination of the unique sign they leave behind.

Assateague Island National Seashore
38.34 N 75.08 W
This barrier island has waterfowl, waders, peeps and songbirds. Habitats include dunes, marshes and forests. Mid-April to Mid-May is best and you avoid the summer crowds.
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park
39.04 N 77.25 W
The 185 mile long canal stretches from Washington, D.C to Cumberland, Maryland. The bottomlands woods are filled with warblers during migration -- but get there early!
39.66 N 76.18 W
Come in the winter to see the Bald Eagles. Thousands of gulls may be found just below the dam.
38.38 N 75.06 W
Stay away in summer -- too crowded. But the rest of the year you will find seabirds and shorebirds along the jetty and in the surrounding areas.
Featured Hot Spot:
Everglades National Park
25.15 N 80.50 W
Anhinga Trail, Snake Bight Trail, and Eco Pond. Watch for Roseate Spoonbill, Purple Gallinule and Short-tailed Hawk. The Shark Valley Entrance is good for Snail Kites. Mosquitoes over 6 inches in length may be counted on your bird life list.
American Bird Conservancy
Conserving Wild Birds and their habitats throughout the Americas. The fundamental role of ABC is to build coalitions of conservation groups, scientists, and members of the public, to tackle key bird priorities using the best resources available.
