Book Signing: Birding Hot Spots
Birding Hot Spots: A Discussion and Book Signing with the author
Sunday, July 26th 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
In their second guide to birding in New Mexico, Judy Liddell and Barbara Hussey share their experiences and intimate knowledge of the best places to find birds in and around Santa Fe and northern New Mexico.
Following the same format as their book on the Albuquerque area, the authors describe 32 sites organized by geographic regions. Along with a general description of each area, the authors list target birds; explain where and when to look for them; give driving directions; provide information about public transportation, parking, fees, restrooms, food and lodging; and give tips on availability of water and picnic facilities and on the presence of hazards such as poison ivy, rattlesnakes and bears. Maps and photographs provide trail diagrams and images of some of the target birds and their environments.
A “helpful information” section covering weather, altitude, safety, transportation and other local birding resources is included along with an annotated checklist of 276 bird species seen with some regularity in and around Santa Fe.
Liddell is a freelance writer, teacher, blogger and board member of Audubon New Mexico and the Central New Mexico Audubon Society, as well as president of the New Mexico Audubon Council.
Hussey is former president, board member, birding field trip leader and newsletter editor for the Central New Mexico Audubon Society. Liddell and Hussey live in Albuquerque and are coauthors of Birding Hot Spots of Central New Mexico.
