Latest revision of guide book proves a valuable birdwatching tool

It’s the heart of summer so more time will be spent in our yards, local parks and other favorite outdoor places. This means the possibility of seeing some new birds is on the horizon. Having a good bird book adds to the fun. A new book, or rather a rewrite of an old favorite, has just been released. “Birds of the Puget Sound Region — Coast to Cascades” is great.
