‘The Birds of Bidwell Park’ Is Now Available
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Roger Lederer, Professor emeritus
The book includes more than 80 illustrations, and, although not a comprehensive field guide, according to Lederer, the book will enable anyone taking a casual stroll or a long hike to identify almost any of the birds they might see.
“Bidwell Park is a wonderful place to see birds because it is both semi-wild and very accessible,” said Lederer. “It is good bird watching for both the beginner and the expert. Nearly 200 species of birds have been seen in Bidwell Park. Some of those are seen only at certain times of the year and others rarely.”
The book is available at the Big Chico Creek Nature Center, the gateway to and official information center for Bidwell Park. It also is available at local bookstores.
