  • Birding at Point Pelee - Henrietta Oneill

    NEW RELEASE A birder's history of Canada's most famous birding hot spot. Birding at Point Pelee traces Point Pelee's story from the 1870s, to the national park's establishment in 1918, to present day, when many birders visit the park in May during spring migration and fall for the southbound journey. The book portrays the backdrop against which the park was evolving, the scientific discoveries and changes in ornithological methods through the decades early specimen-collecting, bird banding, the development of binoculars and telescopes, the growth of nature photography, the shift from birding as science to birding as hobby as well as philosophical shifts and debates about amateur versus professional credentials, and the balance to strike between conservation and recreation. Thoroughly researched and lively, the story takes readers from the earliest days, when the birders were few but fervent, to today's international ecotourism phenomenon. Paperback 224pp 9 x 6"
