Adrian Dorst is Tofino's birding expert and with the release of his newest book, The Birds of Vancouver Island's West Coast, he has cemented that title in place ... [This book] is a fantastic resource for photographers, birders and tourism guides alike. -- Marcie Callewaert * Tofino-Ucluelet Westerly News * In The Birds of Vancouver Island's West Coast, Dorst makes his profoundly hard-earned knowledge gleaned over decades instantly available to anyone inclined to learn more. Accessible to casual birdwatchers on a weekend excursion to Tofino, and yet at 560 pages loaded with material of interest to the most hardcore birder, this book has much to offer. -- Caroline Fox, author of At Sea with the Marine Birds of the Raincoast * BC Booklook *
