National Audubon Society Birds of North America

Summary

Developed by the creators of the best-selling Audubon field guides, this new and definitive volume is the result of a collaboration among leading scientists, scholars, field experts, photo editors, and designers. It includes more than 800 species, with over 3,500 full-color photographs of birds in their natural habitat, often with several images of each species.

For ease of use, the book includes a glossary, an index, and a ribbon marker, and it is arranged according to the American Ornithological Society's latest Checklist of North and Middle American Birds, so that related species are presented together. Range maps, reflecting the impact of climate change, accompany nearly every entry, along with a physical description and information on voice, nesting, habitat, and similar species. This guide also includes an important new section on conservation status and essays by leading scholars.

Whether trying to determine which owl is interrupting your dinner or successfully identifying all of the warblers that arrive in spring, readers will come to rely on this work of remarkable breadth, depth, and elegance. It is a must-have reference for the library of any birder.
