Renowned nature photographer John Netherton shares his experiences in this extraordinary book containing 103 iridescent pictures and up-to-date biological data on nineteen wading bird species. He gives directions to and descriptions of some of the most ideal bird-viewing sites in North America for each of these species, such as national wildlife refuges and National Audubon Society sanctuaries.
Plumage, courtship, breeding, nesting, hatching, feeding, preening, vocalizing, roosting, and migration are among the subjects Netherton covers in North American Wading Birds (originally published in hardcover as At the Water's Edge). Species throughout all 50 states and parts of Canada are depicted, including such birds as the whooping crane, white and glossy ibises, roseate spoonbill, great egret, wood stork, and great blue heron. Also included are a list of wading bird classifications, a bibliography, and an index. Range maps show where these exotic birds exist in North America.
Also recommended: Hummingbirds: Jewels in Flight, Eagles: Masters of the Sky.
