WAS $110. The best-ever book on this complex group and a "must" for the serious bird watcher. The 36 colour plates show the major age, sex and racial variations for all species, with colour distribution maps. Many of these birds are illustrated for the first time in this book.
Thirty-six colour plates show the major age, sex and racial variations for all species (many of which have never been illustrated before). They are accompanied by colour distribution maps and black-and-white drawings. Jon Curson's up-to-the-minute text is based on over ten years' field research in North, South and Central America coupled with meticulous museum work by both author and artists.
New World Warblers represents a significant step forward in our knowledge of one of the most beautiful and conspicuous groups of North American birds.
