Overview

Overview

Flying south in the fall and north in the spring, waterfowl have followed travel routes in the sky for centuries. These migrations are repeated year after year as ducks and geese pass from one region or climate to another for feeding or breeding. Wildlife biologists call these migration corridors flyways, and each flyway-Atlantic, Mississippi, Central, and Pacific-is as varied as the birds that inhabit them. This book is a photographic and informative journey across North America, from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the tundra to the tropics, following the ebb and flow of waterfowl and other wildlife as they travel along these ancestral routes known as flyways. Stunning photographs and inspired text provoke admiration and awe for the beauty and complexity of North America's waterfowl and the vanishing wetlands they call home.
