To add to Lars' recommendation, which I heartily second, and if you do find
the 'vintage' hard copy, check to see if the foldout Oregon map is still
into the back cover. This is often lost over the years. A very nice
addition and worth paying a little extra for, if you are so inclined. Very
worthwhile book for any serious Oregon birder to own, for a whole number of
reasons. If you really want to go 'vintage' you could look for a copy
signed by the author(s). There are a few of these out there as well.
Otherwise, skip to the bottom of this post.

PS Well, it could get a little to spendy, I guess. This one is signed by
the famous Olaus Murrie as the illustrator
