about

The Book of North American Birds is a beautifully illustrated and comprehensive guide to more than 600 species of birds that spend at least part of the year on the North American continent.

More than any other kind of wildlife, birds have an almost magical hold on the human imagination. They are beautiful, vibrantly alive, and seen everywhere. They open our eyes to the world of nature and enrich our spirits with their color, their music, and their wondrous gift of flight.

 

The BOOK OF NORTH AMERICAN BIRDS celebrates the hundreds of species that spend at least part of the year in the United States or Canada. It includes some 600 species in all and the 8 chapters are organized by type and habitat. Each page features a full-color painting, usually of a male in breeding plumage, since the male is more colorful than the female, accompanied by a brief narrative focusing on key aspects of the bird in the wild. At the bottom of each page is information for quick reference, with details on identification, habitat, nesting, and food. In addition, a drawing highlights a particular point of interest about the species, and a color-coded range map showing where it can be found.

 

There is a Special Collection of more than 100 species that are rare or have limited ranges in North America and a Traveler’s Guide arranged alphabetically by state and province, describing more than 350 prime locations for seeing America’s birds at their best.

 

Praise from Roger Tory Peterson highlights the back cover of this volume. The illustrations and paintings are from some of the most renowned wildlife artists in the field, such as H. Douglas Pratt, Ray Harris-Ching, and Albert Earl Gilbert.

 

Fun to read, easy to use, informative, and lovely to look at—here is the perfect book for anyone who loves nature.
