The Joy of Birding in Nevada

Millions of people have discovered bird-feeding. It’s a simple and enjoyable way to bring the beauty of birds closer to your home. Watching birds at the feeder often leads to a lifetime pursuit of bird identification. The Birds of Nevada Field Guide is for those who want to identify the common birds of the Silver State.

There are over 1,100 species of birds found in North America. In Nevada alone there have been more than 490 different kinds of birds recorded throughout the years. These bird sightings, diligently recorded by hundreds of bird-watchers, became part of the official state record. From these valuable records, Stan Tekiela has chosen 139 of the most common birds of Nevada to include in this field guide.

Full-page photographs present the species as they are seen in nature, and a “compare” feature helps readers decide between look-alikes.

The book features:

  • 139 species: only Nevada birds!
  • Simple color guide: See a yellow bird? Go to the yellow section.
  • Stan’s Notes: naturalist tidbits and facts
  • Professional photos: crisp, stunning images
