Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The volumes in the Birds of Ontario series summarize life history requirements of bird species that are normally part of the ecology of Ontario. The first volume dealt with waterfowl through cranes while this volume deals with shorebirds through woodpeckers and completes the treatment of the nonpasserines. Information on habitat, limiting factors, and status are dealt with for the three main bird seasons: breeding, migration, and winter. It is an essential reference for biologists, planners, environmental consultants, and other resource professionals involved in environmental issues and management pertaining to birds, and a valuable reference for serious birders. Although focusing on birds of Ontario, the book will be relevant to adjacent provinces and states.

Synopsis:

In this book, information on habitat, limiting factors, and status is summarized for 84 species of nonpasserines that occur regularly in Ontario. These topics are covered for the three primary avian seasons: breeding, migration, and winter.
