9780774805728: The Birds of British Columbia: Volume 3: Passerines - Flycatchers through Vireos

Eagerly anticipated by bird-watchers and naturalists in the Pacific Northwest, this volume covers 89 passerines, the largest order of birds, including swallows, corvids, chickadees, wrens, thrushes, starlins, and others. Individual species accounts discuss distribution, seasonality, migratory movements, habit requirements, reproduction, and status, and include distribution maps, figures, and photographs of the birds and their habitats, nests, eggs, and young. With its clearly presented information, hundreds of full-color photographs, and beautiful drawings it belongs in any serious collection of bird books.

Review:

The hefty hardcover tome, which covers 91 species of passerines (perching birds) is crammed with information in text, graphs, charts and full-colour photos.  The third in a series of four volumes on the province's avian life, the extensively researched reference work is a book to be studied and perused and admired for its thorough treatment of bird life. (Anne Sullivan Vancouver Courier)

British Columbia has one of the richest assemblages of bird species in the world. The four volumes of The Birds of British Columbia provide unprecedented coverage of this region's birds, presenting a wealth of information on the ornithological history, habitat, breeding habits, migratory movements, seasonality, and distribution patterns of each of the 472 species of birds.

This third volume, covering the first half of the passerines, builds on the authoritative format of the previous bestselling volumes. It contains 89 species, including common ones such as swallows, jays, crows, wrens, thrushes, and starlings. The text is supported by hundreds of full-colour pictures, including unique habitat photographs, detailed distribution maps, and beautiful illustrations of the birds, their nests, eggs, and young.

The Birds of British Columbia is a complete reference work for bird-watchers, ornithologists, and naturalists who want in-depth information on the province's regularly occurring and rare birds.
