Chatty, informative, precise, enthusiastic, and the soul of practicality-in other words, this is exactly what you want in a wise and experienced birding companion. Deborah Rivel and Kellye Rosenheim share not only the best hotspots but the best vantage points, times of day for photography, whether a scope will help or get you cussed at by joggers, where to eat, where to find a bathroom, how to navigate public transportation, and even suggestions for what else to do when you’re finally done birding. Easily one of the best-maybe the best-regional birding guides anywhere.
