Overview

This unique reference guide differs from other bird-identification books in that it focuses on the species of interest to bird hunters - upland game birds, waterfowl and shorebirds. Yet, with its spectacular color photos and in-depth biological information, it will appeal to any bird watcher.

The book covers every popular North American game bird, from favorites like the Canada goose to little-known birds like the sora. You'll learn how to identify birds and how to distinguish them from similar species, both in the hand and on the wing. Besides a wealth of biological information, including size, food habits, emigrational patterns, habitat, breeding behavior, social interaction and popular trends, you'll also learn the basic techniques used for hunting each bird, as well as a rating of eating quality.

Whether you're an avid hunter or just enjoy watching wildlife, this book is sure to gain a prominent space on your bookshelf.
