Of particular interest to visiting birders, the book has superb "suggested routes" that will guide you to target species during your stay. Copies are available for a suggested donation of $10 (plus the cost of shipping). You can also purchase them at locations throughout the Monterey Area. Discounts are available for bulk orders, and we are happy to provide books free of charge to all educational or charitable institutions. Send us a note here if you would like a copy. 

Atlas of the Breeding Birds of Monterey County, edited by Don Roberson and Chris Tenney

This detailed and definitive analysis of Monterey County's breeding birds has set the standard for breeding bird atlases nationwide. It is a superb conservation planning tool, as well as an invaluable resource for recreational birders. Now in very limited supply, the Atlas has become a sought-after collector's item.  The Atlas is available for loan in the Monterey and Pacific Grove Public Libraries.   If interested in acquiring your own copy, please let us know here.
