Description
"Very few photographers have been successful inobtaining outstanding shots of warblers, and none has accomplished sucha superb level of quality photography for the range of warbler species thatMr. Schorre has been able to capture with his camera. . . . His study ofParulinae, represented in this volume, will certainly add to his alreadyconsiderable reputation as a photographic artist of the first rank."--from the ForewordWood warbler migrations every spring and fall are one of the most anticipatedhighlights of the North American birder's year. The warblers' frequentlycolorful appearance and distinctive songs make them especially attractivebirds to observe, but their quick, darting movements, often among the highestbranches of the trees, can make it difficult to tell one species from another.This book is a handy beginner's pictorial guide to the identificationof forty-nine wood warbler species that commonly nest in the United Statesand Canada. Barth Schorre's outstanding color photographs help you distinguisheach species. (Both males and females are usually shown when they differsignificantly in appearance.) An accompanying description gives each species'common and Latin names, average length, general range, relative abundance, and identifying characteristics. Schorre also briefly discusses the lifehistory and migratory patterns of warblers, the diminishing numbers of somespecies, and ways to attract warblers to your yard.
