An all-new holistic approach to identifying shorebirds.
Join the experts in birding by impression, a revolutionary approach to bird identification. Experienced birders use the most easily observed characteristics — size, structure, behavior, and general color patterns — to identify birds even before looking carefully at plumage details. Now birders at all levels can learn how to identify shorebirds quickly and simply. This guide includes more than 870 stunning color photographs, starting with a general impression of the species and progressing to more detailed images of the bird throughout its life cycle. Quiz questions in the captions will engage and challenge all birders and help them benefit from this simplified, commonsense approach to identification.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a very complete book on the subject of North American Shorebirds. The photos are fairly clear. Many of the photos show several shorebirds which should help the reader learn the differences between the birds. Bill shape and length, overall size, color and pattern can be seen.
This work is an essential guide to anyone wanting to know and identify shorebirds. I was away from birding for almost 25 years and was never proficient at shorebird identification. This book was invaluable.
