In range, Wild Geese covers the geese of North America, Europe and
Asia, and thus the world species except for the Hawaiian Goose or
Ne-Ne. The plan of the book is similar to the author's Ducks of Britain
and Europe but distribution, status and migration rightly assume a more
extensive role in Wild Geese and the detailed text on those subjects is
fully complemented by migration and distribution maps.

Comprehensive chapters are also devoted to classification, ecology,
breeding, identification, and to exploitation and conservation. The
identification chapter is especially helpful with sections on adult and
first winter birds, downy young, plumage variants and voice, for each
species and sub-species, as well as guidance on ageing and sexing geese
in the field. The text is effectively supported by 16 identification
plates in colour by Carol Ogilvie, showing details of heads and bills
as well as all species in flight and on the ground, and downy young.

The author is an established authority on ducks and geese and has been a research

scientist at the Wildfowl Trust, Slimbridge, England, since 1960
