A quick and easy-to-use, lightweight, durable, all-weather field guide to the remarkable and varied birdlife inhabiting the northern Rocky Mountains region within the US states of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, in addition to the adjacent Canadian provinces of British Colombia and Alberta.
Stunning digital photographs depict 125 species of common and notable birds, enabling users to identify nearly every commonly occurring bird and regional specialty they encounter—day or night—within the guide’s remarkable area of coverage.
Aimed at beginning and intermediate birders, the guide will easily fit into any daypack, pocket or glove compartment, facilitating spontaneous and easy field identification—whether in a backyard, on a family vacation, or on a serious birding trip to the best birding hot spots within Wyoming’s Yellowstone N.P., Montana’s Glacier N.P., Idaho’s myriad national forests, or Canada’s Jasper N.P and beyond, all within the beautiful northern Rocky Mountains region.
About the author
Greg R. Homel is an ornithologist, award-winning international nature photojournalist, documentary film producer, birding tour leader and lecturer.
He lives and works from his home within the magnificent Los Padres National Forest, California, USA (home of the California Condor) and from his second homes at Río Lagartos, surrounded by the magnificent Ría Lagartos National Park and Biosphere Reserve at the north tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and El Tuito, near Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico.
A birder-naturalist since childhood, Greg founded Natural Elements Productions in 1986 and Natural Encounters Birding Tours shortly thereafter. Now he travels the globe on a full-time basis in search of rare and little-known birds and other wildlife.
His travels on all seven continents, from the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic and points between, have allowed him to see more than half of the planet's roughly 9,800+ bird species in their natural habitats.
His early work appeared regularly in books and magazines, including Wildbird Magazine, The Audubon Society Field Guides to Eastern Birds and The Audubon Society Field Guides to Western Birds, Time, Birder's World, Tucson Lifestyle, and Texas Monthly magazines.
