MEDIA REVIEWS
Each species enjoys a step-by-step profile to facilitate precise identification, while brilliant color photographs reveal birds in their natural habitat.--Sue Reyna"E-Streams" (11/01/2006)
A very useful field guide and birding primer... In fact, since many waterfowl are common to both coasts, this guide is useful for west coast observation as well... excellent color photographs showing the bird swimming and flying.-- (08/01/2005)
Filled with incredibly vibrant photographs of wildfowl in their natural habitat. Each bird and gender is described.-- (04/01/2005)
For each species the format is two full-color pages with excellent photographs, notes on distinctive features, and range maps... This is an attractive handbook for novice birders, new hunters, and others wanting to name waterfowl. Summing Up: Recommended.-- (10/01/2005)
A beautiful photographic guide to ducks and other waterfowl found in the eastern U.S... A handy section in the back provides photos of similar waterfowl species for comparison.-- (07/01/2005)
A must-have book if you love watching our feathered friends. While the 400 magnificent color photographs will catch your eye, it's the anecdotes that keep even non-birders flocking back for more.-- (06/01/2005)
An excellent field guide... illustrated with excellent photographs of both male and females... useful comparison photographs complete the guide.-- (12/01/2005)
