    • Published: April 2011
    This is the fifth book on identifying birds in the southeastern US that Wilson has written, alone or with others. Here he describes more than 100 birds that people are most likely to see on the Atlantic beach, in the marshes, and in backyards in Georgia. The first arrangement is by habitat: backyard, marsh and pond, and ocean and short. Within those sections, he takes birds by size from smallest to largest. Readers can go right to habitat and size quickly, he says, and so avoid wandering through distant parts of the book. Beautiful color photographs are accompanied by descriptions and information about the bird's life. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

    Extending from the spillway below Cochiti Dam, about fifty miles north of Albuquerque, to the headwaters of Elephant Butte Reservoir, near Truth or Consequences in the southern portion of New Mexico, the Middle Rio Grande Bosque is more than a cottonwood woodland or forest. It is a complete riverside ecosystem, among the more important in the world's arid regions.Every day hundreds of visitors to the bosque encounter flora and fauna they can't identify. Researchers and municipal, county, state, and federal resource agency personnel concerned with the bosque's management need to know how plants and animals are linked to their habitats.With descriptions of more than seven hundred plants and animals illustrated with color photographs, this authoritative guide is the first of its kind for the Middle Rio Grande Bosque and is an invaluable resource for land managers, teachers, students, eco-buffs, and nature enthusiasts. It also reveals the important role the bosque plays in New Mexico's natural heritage.
