  • Over 400 photos of representative feathers from 379 species
  • How to identify not only what bird a feather came from but also what kind of feather it is
  • Range maps and wing type given for each bird

    This guide teaches birders to use the characteristics of wing types and feather morphology to identify feathers--not only by species but also by their place on the bird's body.

    The introductory chapters give a detailed overview of the feather--how feathers developed, the parts of a single feather, and the variety of types of feathers on a bird. In the feather identification section, more than 400 color photographs show feather samples from 379 bird species from all over North America. Along with the wing type of the species and a map showing its range, several types of feathers are included for each bird; each feather is labeled with its type and its size.

    Review:

    "Bird Feathers is a unique and valuable book, the first to deal with identifying birds by their feathers. . . the well-qualified authors are to be highly commended for this excellent, helpful reference book." (CHOICE: Current Reviews For Academic Libraries 2011-07-08)

    "As a reference, Bird Feathers will be useful to anyone who spends significant time outdoors. But for birders, it's even more valuable for the insight it provides into birds' lives, form, and appearance." (The Birder's Library 2011-07-08)

    "an outstanding guide to feathers" (Birder's World 2011-01-01)

    "Bird Feathers is a must-have book for naturalists and birders...sure to become an invaluable reference in wild bird stores and nature centers nationwide." (Birding Business Magazine 2011-01-01)
