Abstract:

Each full-page profile combines a precise description, annotated photographs, and artworks to highlight the key field marks of the species in each plumage. Similar species are shown, and distinguishing characteristics are noted. Further information in the bird's habits describes the typical song and other vocalizations, behavior, breeding, nesting, population, and conservation concerns. Typical flight patterns as well as nest locations and shapes are described with clear icons, and amplified in the text. Each bird's range during summer, winter, and migration is clearly shown on a map. -- from back cover.
