A lot of data probably of no interest to the average birder. But worst of all no pictures useful to I.D. birds. Some historical interest.
This is any extremely comprehensive manual, essential for anyone with a serious interest in birds of the Okanagan region. Note, however, this book is very bulky and is largely text with few images. It is not intended to help anyone identify birds! (... but, if you already have a good field guide (e.g., the National Geographic Birds of North America) it can be very helpful in one regard - it will tell you exactly what bird species occur in the Okanagan, in what months, and whether they are known to breed. Expect something much more akin to an academic text (but very readable), than a field guide.

It is 25 years old. It would be nice to see a new updated edition!
