Best Places to Bird in Ontario

As no doubt some of you have heard, Ken and Mike Burrell have been busy writing and assembling their new book titled Best Places to Bird in Ontario, scheduled for release this spring. I recently received my advance copy in the mail and I am very impressed with what I've seen so far. Ken and Mike are lifelong birders based in southern Ontario (Ken in Kitchener, Mike in Peterborough) and they are intimately familiar with many of the birding hotspots throughout the province. I can tell that a lot of effort has gone into producing this excellent book!

Details regarding pre-ordering can be found on their website. You can pre-order directly through Amazon, or you can stop by one of their book signings this spring to receive a signed copy for 5$ off the list price. They list a number of events where the books can be picked up, including:

April 20; Guelph: WildBirds Unlimited, book signing
April 28; Gravenhurst: Muskoka Discovery Centre presentation
May 4-14; Point Pelee National Park: one or both of us will be in the park daily
