New Photo-filled Solano County Breeding Bird Atlas

Golden Gate Birder writes about the New Breeding Bird Atlas for Solano Council

Breeding Birds of Solano County is a breeding bird atlas like no other breeding bird atlas you’ve ever seen.

With a glossy, photo-filled hardcover format and a weight of over five pounds, it is as beautiful as any coffee-table art book produced by a museum.

Just published by Napa-Solano Audubon Society, the atlas would make a splendid holiday gift not just for birders but for anyone with an interest in California nature.

It provides descriptions of historic range, breeding behavior, and conservation status for 151 birds that nest in Solano County. It also offers 350 color photos by sixty Bay Area bird photographers, including 44 images by GGAS’s own board member and birding instructor Bob Lewis. And it has detailed color maps for each species, created by GGAS instructor and mapping professional Rusty Scalf.
