Shorebirds of North
A Comprehensive Guide to All Species
Shorebirds of North America contains over 200 color photos of all the
breeding and commonly occurring shorebird species found in North America.
Species accounts show breeding and nonbreeding plumages when differences occur,
as well as many immature and juvenile plumages. Some similar species are shown
side by side to allow for easier ID comparison, such as the dowitchers,
yellowlegs and willets.
Each featured species includes a short description of their physical and
plumage features, body and wingspan measurements, and preferred habitats. The
status of each species, including seasonal frequency, resident or migrant
occurrence, and breeding location and habitats are also noted.
These guides differ from other similar products by the increased number of
photos for each species, which allows readers to compare a variety of
individuals on the same page. This laminated, waterproof, folding field guide is
a must for anyone who wants to identify shorebirds anywhere in North America—and
they fit in your back pocket when you complete your ID conclusion. You’ve tried
the rest; now try the best quick reference guides for North American
shorebirds. Author: Kevin T. Karlson
