Summary
"I have been investigating publishing a book about the Pacific Flyway in the mode of The Salish Sea: a beautifully visual book with highly informed text. There is a surprising dearth of books about the Pacific Flyway, despite its prominence as a subject on the Audubon website. Awareness of the flyway would give any birdwatcher an advantage in seeing the greatest numbers of birds. The Pacific Flyway encompasses the great swath of territory from the Arctic to southern South America that supports the migrations of many bird varieties. Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California figure prominently in the flyway"--
Summary
Stretching from the Arctic regions of northeastern Russia, Alaska, and western Canada and along the Pacific coastlines of North, Central, and South America, the Pacific Flyway traverses some of our planet's greatest climatic and topographic extremes. Defined by water, the flyway encompasses a sweeping expanse of coastal and offshore marine ecosystems and an inland archipelago of freshwater wetlands. Hemispheric in scope, this integrated network of ecosystems is linked by its moving parts--the millions of migratory birds whose lives depend on this 10,000-mile corridor as they travel between their breeding and overwintering grounds
