Peterson

The best-selling field guides of all time

There are thousands of moth species in the northeast of North America, and while it might seem that they are all drab grays and browns, there is actually a startling variety. They come in a rainbow of colors, from brilliant oranges and pinks to soft greens and violets. There are moths with colorful leopardlike spots, and ones that look more like B-movie aliens; some that are as large as your hand, and others the size of a grain of rice.

With helpful tips on how to attract and identify moths, range maps and season graphs showing at a glance when and where to find each species, and clear photographs that use the unique Peterson arrow system for easy identification, this guide provides everything an amateur or experienced moth-watcher needs.

Meet the Author

David Beadle grew up in Kent, England, where he had no interest in the natural world until he was gripped by an obsession with birds in his late teens. It was while working at a bird observatory that David became interested in moths, an interest that soon grew to an all-consuming passion. He now lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his wife and son, and he has photographed more than 2,000 species of moths in that province alone.

In addition to his work with moths, David has contributed to over thirty books and countless journals, including New World Warblers and A Field Guide to the Birds of Chile.

Seabrooke Leckie is a biologist and naturalist, writer and photographer, but most of all a lover of nature. She holds a B.Sc.H. in Zoology and has worked on field research contracts in many parts of the continent, from California to Qu├ębec, British Columbia to Ohio, as well as her home province of Ontario. She discovered moths quite by accident one summer while away on contract, and they've since become her number one passion. Birds are her second interest; she is a federally licensed bird bander and volunteers each summer with a local bird research organization. She lives in rural eastern Ontario with her man, two dogs and three cats. Most afternoons you can find her outdoors, peering closely at flora and fauna, camera in hand. She blogs her discoveries at her website, seabrookeleckie.com.
