The New York City Audubon Society has published a com- prehensive guide, The New York City Audubon Society Guide to Finding Birds in the Metropolitan Area by Marcia T. Fowle (President) and Paul Kerlinger (author of Flight Strategies of Migrating Hawks and How Birds Migrate).
The Guide is almost as good as having an expert birding with you. It provides a wealth of information on forty-five bir- ding sites in the New York Metropolitan Area, including Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland and Ulster counties in New York, and many sites in nearby New Jersey. The book is a complete, precise and detailed, step-by-step guide to where species re- side, vegetation, weather, wind, migration patterns, when to go, who to contact and also includes a map of each area and detailed direc- tions. There is also a checklist of the birds of New York City. The New York City Audubon Society Guide to Finding Birds in the Metropolitan Area
