Abstract:

"Join the experts in this revolutionary approach to bird identification. Experienced birders use the most easily observed characteristics - size, structure, behavior, and general color patterns - to identify birds even before looking carefully at plumage details. Now birders at all levels can learn how to identify shorebirds quickly and simply. This guide includes more than 870 color photographs, starting with a general impression of the species and progressing to more detailed images of the bird throughout its life cycle. Quiz questions in the captions will engage and challenge all birders and help them benefit from this approach to identification."--Jacket.
