Waterfowl of North America: A Comprehensive Guide to All Species


Waterfowl of North America: A Comprehensive Guide to All Species contains 185 color photos of all the breeding and commonly occurring waterfowl species found in North America.

Species accounts show perched, swimming and flight photos, with males and females illustrated where applicable. Immature birds are shown for some species as well. Some similar species are shown side by side to allow for easier ID comparison.

Each featured species includes a short description of their physical features, body and wingspan measurements, and preferred habitats. The status of each species, including seasonal frequency, resident or migrant occurrence, and breeding location and habitats are also noted.

This laminated, waterproof, folding field guide is a must for anyone who wants to identify waterfowl anywhere in North America. The 12 panels of this guide fold up into a handy pocket-size, making it sturdy enough to withstand repeated use in the field.
