“Freeway Birding” Book a Boon for Birders

Birders. There are 48 million of them in the USA, according to the Fish and Wildlife Service.

These dedicated nature enthusiasts are often in the “baby boomer” generation, semi-retired but with places to go and things to do. They take birding classes, go on field trips, log on to websites to see daily updates of the latest bird sightings, and purchase books on their favorite subject.

Just-released Freeway Birding, San Francisco to Seattle is a pleasant surprise, presenting as it does an entirely new take on birding. Specifically, how to squeeze some unexpected birding opportunities into what could be just another routine drive up the Interstate.

Ashland, Oregon author Harry Fuller took time out from his busy schedule of leading field trips and teaching classes to put together this 352 page guide book. Opportunities range from 10-minute rest stop birding adventures to half-day loop trips, all within a few miles either side of the freeway.

104 detailed maps keep you from getting lost, and the site descriptions tell just what to expect, in the way of both species and facilities.

Freeway Birding covers the Bay Area, I-505, the I-80 corridor to Sacramento, and from there, all of I-5 up to Seattle. It is published by Living Gold Press. You can learn more at www.freewaybirding.com.
