Wetland Birds of North America: A Guide to Observation, Understanding and Conservation (Paperback)
Special Order - Subject to Availability
Bird watching is a serious business and the number one outdoor activity in North America. Wetlands, marshes, woods, swamps, shallow lakes, ponds, and prairie sloughs are all considered wetlands and are the homes to a variety of birds that depend on wetlands for their food and habitat.
In this comprehensive, fully illustrated guide to wetland birds, photographer and naturalist Scott Leslie profiles some of the most common species that novice birders may observe, including loons, great blue herons, greater yellow legs, bald eagles, warblers, sparrows, and sandpipers. Each entry provides a complete profile of a species including a description of its appearance, habitat, behavior, calls and sounds, food, family life, distribution and migration, conservation concerns, and related species. Also included is a guide to North America's most easily accessible bird-rich wetlands by region, a great resource that explains where to find some of the most fascinating natural areas on the continent.
"Wetland Birds of North America" is the only guidebook on the market that answers questions about common wetland birds, features full-color photographs, and is formatted to fit conveniently into a large pocket or a day pack.
