Was that a lynx or a bobcat? A nuthatch or a chickadee?

A Field Guide to Wildlife of the Rocky Mountains is a must have for any visitor to the Rocky Mountain region of British Columbia, Alberta, Montana and Idaho. Featuring over a hundred superb full-colour photos, this waterproof pamphlet provides an essential look at the variety of animals one is most likely to encounter on the area's park trails and roadsides. Information on the size of each animal, as well as the common and Latin names makes it easy to identify wildlife. Similar species are grouped by appearance for easy comparison. Handy on the trails, this field guide is also the perfect souvenir of the abundance of wildlife to be found in the Rocky Mountains.
