An in-depth biological overview of a fascinating group of waterfowl

'Paul A. Johnsgard’s first glimpse of a North American ruddy duck—a chestnut-brown bird with a blue bill, black head, and white cheeks—led to decades of observing the eight extant species of stiff-tailed ducks.

This richly illustrated volume highlights these unique species at a critical time, when their wetlands habitats are increasingly at risk.
