City and country birds populate this book. Some soar through the Poconos, but many can be seen in the shadow of bustling Philadelphia or Pittsburgh: Outside Philly, identify the Yellow-billed Cuckoo by its brilliant lower mandible and staccato kuk-kuk-kuk! The Snow Goose, with its pink bill and "grinning patch" migrates in spring and fall across the state's eastern border. The stunning Red-Tailed Hawk, with its unmistakably coloured tail and bloomer-like leg-feathers soars on thermals north of Reading. The whiskered, olive-hued Acadian Flycatcher is a common species; it darts from its perch to grab prey in woodlands and swamps throughout the state. Ironic that its call is a quiet Peace! "National Geographic Field Guide to Birds: Pennsylvania" is the 5th set in the series of pocket-size bird field guides. Each guide is 272 pages and features about 175 birds. The book's trim size fits in a backpack or pocket for easy access.
