6444Re: [CALBIRDS] Visiting California RFI.
- Aug 1, 2007Hi Bob,
Harrison's two seabird books (one illustrated, the other
photographic) are both very good, but you don't always get looks that
let you rely on plumage. Debi Shearwater has a video called "Through
the Seasons" that shows you flight patterns as well. When you get to
Storm-Petrels, this is often the easier way to get an ID if you know
what to look for.
There is also a good book on dolphins and whales, but I don't have it
here at my desk and can't remember the author or the exact name.
