Birding at Point Pelee - A birder's history of one of Canada's most famous birding spots
By Henrietta T. ONeill
From the back jacket:
Hennrietta T. O'Neill traces the story of Point Pelee National Park of Canada from the 1870s, when birders were few but fervent, to now, when as many as 50,000 birders visit the park each year.
Since its establishment in 1918 on the southernmost tip of Canada's mainland, the park has evolved along with the ornithological methods used within its lush green habitats - including specimen collecting, bird banding, the development of binoculars and telescopes, the growth of nature photography, and the shift to birding as a hobby as well as a scientific pusuit.
Thoroughly researched and lively,
Birding at Point Pelee also looks at philosophical shifts and debates among birding enthusiasts and the balance between conservation and recreation in one of the world's most famous oases for birds and birders.
