The first complete survey of the birds of Nunavut, this fully illustrated reference work identifies and documents the distribution, ecology, behaviour, and conservation of the species that live in and migrate through the territory.
Most people wouldn’t think to look for penguins in a hot desert, but every year along a windswept edge of coastal Patagonia, hundreds of thousands of Magellanic penguins gather to rear their young at Punta Tombo, Argentina, the largest penguin colony in the world outside of Antarctica.
Volume 2–Nonpasserines: Shorebirds through Woodpeckers
This volume and its predecessor condense the vast amount of literature on the nonpasserines of Ontario into a compact reference manual that will be essential to biologists, environmental planners, and serious birders.
The result of a decade-long project, this lavishly illustrated book presents a wealth of information on bird distribution, migration and breeding chronology, habitat use, and on conservation concerns in the Yukon.
