Birds of Napa County
Written & Illustrated by Hermann Heinzel
You will find a liveliness to renowned illustrator Hermann Heinzel's field guide to Napa County birds, from grebes, herons, and ducks to creepers, owls, flycatchers and sparrows. Its playfulness, sophistication and emotion add depth to our understanding of this place that two million people visit each year. It is more than just a convenient bird guide: it reveals a world beyond vineyards, an affirmation that there is both beauty and a magic to the forests and rolling hills of Napa.
With over 300 species of birds depicted realistically in their natural environment — poking at the ground or pecking at pinecones — organized by species as well as by season and region, this guide has everything for the experienced or novice birder, including a locator map, a checklist, and a section on rare birds. And it fits in your hip pocket!
132 pages, 4-¾" x 8-¾", full-color printing on glossy paper, durable binding, about 1000 color illustrations, 7 reference maps, 155 range maps, checklist for birds of Napa County, index of common and scientific names, 2006.
