About this title


This complete guide to 150 species of ducks, geese, and swans provides color illustrations of all major plumages and subspecies and offers informative details on voice, population, distribution, range, habits, and habitats--for beginners and experts.

From Library Journal:

Comprehensive monographs like Paul A. Johnsgard's Ducks, Geese, and Swans of the World ( LJ 1/1/79) do not emphasize field identification. Field guides are geographically limited and do not always give full coverage of variant plumages. Therefore, birders, hunters, and aviarists will be pleased by this authoritative guide by English writer Madge ( Birdwatching ) to the world's waterfowl in virtually every plumage. The 47 color plates by Burn (also English), with range maps and brief descriptions of field marks, are followed by 155 detailed species accounts; both sections are in taxonomic order. Subspecies are noted; a few easily recognized ones are treated separately. Includes selective bibliography and good index. Highly recommended. Paul B. Cors, Univ. of Wyoming Lib., Laramie
