Max Smith is a wildlife biologist currently working with the U.S. Forest Service. His research covers hummingbirds, desert fish, and rare wetland ecosystems. He met the coauthor of his book Must-See Birds of the Pacific Northwest, Sarah Swanson, in graduate school when they were studying birds in the same lab, and they have been birding together ever since. With their dog, Andie, they split their time between Portland and Pacific City, Oregon.

Format: Paperback
The Pacific Northwest is a great place for birding. You can find Western Grebes dancing on water, or hear the Pacific Wren’s song cascade through a mossy forest.

Must-See Birds of the Pacific Northwest is a lively, practical guide that helps readers discover 85 of the region’s most extraordinary birds. Each bird profile includes notes on what they eat, where they migrate from, and where to find them in Washington and Oregon. Profiles also include stunning color photographs of each bird. Birds are grouped by what they are known for or where they are most likely to be found—like beach birds, urban birds, colorful birds, and killer birds.

This is an accessible guide for casual birders, weekend warriors, and families looking for an outdoor experience. Eight easy-going birding weekends, including stops in Puget Sound, the Central Washington wine country, and the Klamath Basin, offer wonderful getaway ideas and make this a must-have guide for locals and visitors alike.
