Description

Updated to reflect all the latest taxonomic data, Birds of Canada is the complete photographic guide to 613 species of birds found in Canada, including the most common species, rare, and vagrant birds.

Ideal for the armchair bird enthusiast or dedicated bird watcher, this book includes stunning full-color photographs revealing individual species with unrivaled clarity. The 436 most commonly seen birds are pictured with plumage variations, and information on similar birds is provided to make differentiation easy, from game birds and waterfowl to shorebirds and swifts to owls, wood warblers, finches, and more.

Written by a team of more than 30 birders and ornithologists with expertise in particular species or families, and produced in association with David M. Bird, Emeritus Professor of Wildlife Biology at McGill University, this updated edition of Birds of Canada is the ultimate photographic guide to Canadian birds.

Dr. Bird is a regular columnist for both Bird Watcher's Digest and Canadian Wildlife and is the author of several books and over 200 scientific publications.
