In this comprehensive, fully illustrated guide, photographer and naturalist Scott Leslie profiles some of the most common species that birders may observe, including wrens, flycatchers, jays, chickadees, and ravens. The book provides a cross-section of nearly 100 key species that make the woods home. The only bird book of its kind to be based on woodland ecosystems, it features a detailed profile for each species, including sections on habitat, appearance, behavior, food, migration, sounds, family life, related species, conservation, and a range map. Woodland Birds of North America also has a unique feature among bird guides: species that are in danger of extinction are accompanied by an additional map that describes their conservation status for every state, province, and territory on the continent. Printed in a handy, pocket-friendly format, the book includes chapters on woodland bird habitats and the conservation challenges these creatures face.
