An indispensable field guide and reference for birders.

The eastern Continental Divide from Florida to Ontario contains the world's largest network of freshwater lakes, rivers, wetlands and coastal waters. It is home to an astonishingly large variety of ducks, geese, and other waterfowl.

Waterfowl of Eastern North America is a richly illustrated pocket-sized field guide for birders and naturalists. Full-color photographs show these birds in their natural habitats in each season.

Comparison pages group similar-looking birds on a single spread for quick reference. Concise and accurate information on each species includes:

  • Common name
  • Biological classification
  • Identifying features
  • Seasonal changes to plumage color.

The detailed information on each species is concisely organized and includes the differences between male and female, seasonal and immature plumage, morphs and distinctive markings.

The coverage includes:

  • Ducks and geese
  • Swans and pelicans
  • Loons, grebes and cormorants.

Waterfowl of Eastern North America also features essential information for birders who want to support conservation groups that protect waterfowl and their quickly disappearing habitats.

About the Author:

Review:

Each species enjoys a step-by-step profile to facilitate precise identification, while brilliant color photographs reveal birds in their natural habitat. (Sue Reyna E-Streams)

Filled with incredibly vibrant photographs of wildfowl in their natural habitat. Each bird and gender is described. (Ontario Sailor)

A very useful field guide and birding primer... In fact, since many waterfowl are common to both coasts, this guide is useful for west coast observation as well... excellent color photographs showing the bird swimming and flying. (Diana Mumford Wave Length Magazine)

For each species the format is two full-color pages with excellent photographs, notes on distinctive features, and range maps... This is an attractive handbook for novice birders, new hunters, and others wanting to name waterfowl. Summing Up: Recommended. (C. Leck Choice)

A beautiful photographic guide to ducks and other waterfowl found in the eastern U.S... A handy section in the back provides photos of similar waterfowl species for comparison. (Wildlife Activist)

A must-have book if you love watching our feathered friends. While the 400 magnificent color photographs will catch your eye, it's the anecdotes that keep even non-birders flocking back for more. (Liz Grogan Good Times)

An excellent field guide... illustrated with excellent photographs of both male and females... useful comparison photographs complete the guide. (Ibis [British Ornithologists' Union])
