Birds of the Genesee by Robert Marcotte

Birds of the Genesee - $24.95

by Robert Marcotte

 

In Birds of the Genesee, author/birder Robert Marcotte discusses all aspects of birding and how Lake Ontario is both a magnet and a barrier, funneling hundreds of thousands of migrating hawks, waterfowl and songbirds along its shores and over its waters every year. How local ornithologists have progressed from shooting birds to “digiscoping” them. How constant alterations of landscape have benefited some species and hurt others and how we must go about protecting the unique birds most imperiled by loss of habitat.

 

You will discover the nearly four hundred species of wild birds that have been reported in Monroe, Livingston, and Wayne Counties; eastern Orleans, Genesee, and Wyoming Counties; and western Ontario County. You will learn when to look for them, where to find them – and how to identify them. You will also learn how to identify them once you do. You will also learn how to landscape your property and stock your feeders to bring more birds into your yard.

 

Morethan 150 photographs in glorious color and vintage black and white, illustrate the story of birding in the Genesee Region. Birds are our most visible form of wildlife. Watching them is pure joy, a hobby that can last a lifetime. Birds of the Genesee will get you started.
