Synopsis

Synopsis

Essential, comprehensive, and easy to use, National Geographic Complete Book of Birds is an astonishing resource that covers every bird species in North America, as well as all the migrants that fly through. The entries are organized by family groups-an incredible 82 are included-according to the American Ornithological Union guidelines. Within a family, each separate bird entry has dozens of tips and illustrations on species' genders, age groups, behavior, habitats, nesting and feeding habits, and migration routes. Readers will also find unique features, such as:
  • A quick-find index for the most common bird groups and a full glossary
  • Straightforward, accessible text by numerous birding experts, including National Geographic's resident birding consultant Jonathan Alderfer
  • Hundreds of range and migration maps from renowned ornithologist Paul Lehman with National Geographic cartographers
  • State-of-the-art, updated bird illustrations by expert artists, including Jonathan Alderfer
  • New and original photographs from well-known bird photographers Kevin Karlson and Brian Small


Perfect for novice or experienced birders alike, National Geographic Complete Book of Birds is a definitive, must-have resource. Quite simply, there is no other volume like it.
