Birds of Vashon 2nd Ed.

Birds of Vashon 2nd Ed.
Vashon is a rural island of great bird habitat set in a sea of urban development. Its wind-swept beaches, thick stands of second-growth conifer and madrone forest, open farmland, and thickets are home to more than 250 different species of birds.

Naturalist and author Ed Swan helps readers know more about the Island’s bird species and how and where to find them.  He illuminates the connectedness of the birds to the condition of the land and water on which we all depend.  

First published in 2005, this book inspired Island residents and visitors to explore Vashon habitats and document and share their sightings of birds.  Now, nearly a decade later, this new edition documents 15 additional species on the Vashon list.  It includes updated and expanded species accounts, all-new color maps, dozens of color photos from some of the best nature photographers of the region. In addition, it includes:

• Seasonal abundance charts for every species ever seen on Vashon

• An updated site guide to all the best birding hot spots

• A description of the habitat and history of this unique island jewel

• A checklist of all the birds of Vashon, including every rarity ever spotted
