Overview

Birds of North America is the ultimate family reference on the birds of the United States and Canada, in an accessible format that is perfect for field use.

Written by a team of more than 30 birders and ornithologists, each an expert on certain species or family bird groups, Birds of North America brings a whole new level of expertise to the birder's library, all in one category-killing volume. Information on behavior, nesting, and habitat, omitted from many field guides, is included throughout, while books on behavior don't include the wealth of identification information, in as accessible a format, as does this book.

Great photography, information and discriptions about the various birds listed make this book a very attractive and educational addition to the reference library. Great for use in indentifing birds that may be seen in the backyards, or on the farms in North America.

This is a large book, and makes a great reference book for those who love birding, are studying birds or have a family who likes to do the backyard birdwatch. It contains much information about ornithology in general, the anatomy and physiology of birds as well as the differences in different species and their living habits. It would also make an excellent book for a school library.
