Birds of the Saskaton Area
Published by the Saskatoon Nature Society and Nature Saskatchewan

Six years in preparation through the effort of 70 writers, Birds of the Saskatoon Area is a tribute to half a century of birding by a dedicated and enthusiastic community of people. Based on the accumulated observations of over 200 observers during a period of 45 years, it is a comprehensive introduction to the 341 species of birds so far identified in Saskatoon and surrounding area.

Sponsored jointly by Nature Saskatchewan and the Saskatoon Nature Society, the book is the most ambitious regional publication yet produced in the prairie provinces. Over 300 pages in length, it contains 40 line drawing by local artists, 27 habitat photographs, and 14 colour maps. Designed to accompany a field guide, Birds of the Saskatoon Area introduces the reader to the climate, land forms, and vegetation of the region. It provides detailed information and maps on the birding hot spots, as well as informative account of abundance, migratory movements, breeding, and habitat preference of each species. Intended primarily for local residents interested in birds and the outdoors, it will also be much appreciated by visitors to the area.

Birds of the Saskatoon Area will be available at regular monthly meetings of the Saskatoon Nature Society (Saskatoon), from Nature Saskatchewan (Regina), and all local bookstores.
