More than 165 birds from all over the world spend at least some time within Denali National Park and Preserve. In this book, richly illustrated with the art of David Allen Sibley, you'll find species that draw birders to Alaska because of their rarity in North America. Others are residents whose life histories teach us about adaptations to life in the far north.
This lively introduction to Denali's birds features 44 selected species and includes habitat and location, migration stories, and conservation status. For a complete list of Denali's birds and as an excellent companion to this book, purchase a copy of the Bird Checklist of Denali National Park and Preserve by the same authors.
