Life Histories of North American Marsh Birds Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Coots, bitterns, rails, crakes, cranes, herons, egrets, many others. 180 photographs.

Synopsis:

Bent's Life Histories series is the most comprehensive and reliable collection of information ever compiled on the behavior of birds — a must for ornithologists, amateur bird-watchers, naturalists and anyone for whom an involvement with birds doesn't end with identification. Bent gives careful, detailed resumes of virtually everything known about the life-cycles and habits of hundreds of birds: field marks and plumage, courtship, nesting, care of young, voice, enemies, food, migration, eggs, winter ranges, and many other topic. In addition, each volume is profusely illustrated with li photographs. It is unlikely that a work of such thoroughness (originally published under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution) will ever be superseded or even equalled. The volumes will serve perpetually both as essential reference works and as superlative introductions to the world of birds.

54 different kinds of marsh birds: American flamingo, roseate spoonbill, ibises, bitterns, herons, egrets, cranes, limpkin, rails, crakes, gallinules, and coots.
