Overview

"Arctic Wings is a celebration in word and image of the birds that have journeyed to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and back every year since time immemorial. In 200 color images from nature photographers Subhankar Banerjee, Steven Kazlowski, Michio Hoshino, Authur Morris, Mark Wilson, and Hugh Rose, we experience an intense drama of birth and renewal. Essays by biologists and conservationists detail the life histories of representative bird species from every major group including loons and waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, gulls and terns, owls and songbirds, as well as the remarkable birds that over-winter in the refuge, explaining how the unique habitats of the refuge are critical to all. David Allen Sibley reflects on the grand dance of avian migration and the sense of time and place on the earth that it provides; Debbie Miller tells how the perilous journeys of songbirds from the Arctic connect the world's people; Mark Wilson shares his story of discovery canoeing down the refuge's Canning River; Robert Thompson and Sarah James reveal the relationship between birds and Native cultures; Kenn Kaufman considers the connections between the Arctic and the places we love to watch birds; and more." Arctic Wings reveals the vital importance of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to world bird populations and the consequences of allowing oil exploration within its boundaries.

    A stunningly beautiful nature photography book

    Arctic Wings: Birds Of The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a stunningly beautiful nature photography book. From robins feeding their young, to migratory flocks in flight, to raptors and water birds, the variety of the arctic's feathered denizens is superbly captured in these full-color images. An introduction and several essays offer insight into the complexity and majesty of the arctic ecosystem and the role that birds play, but the majority of Arctic Wings is devoted to breathtaking photography. An accompanying CD of arctic refuge birdsongs is included.
