A near fine hardcover in dust jacket. First American Edition. 64 color plates. One of many of the Helm identification guides now out of print. In this book, all 214 species of woodpeckers, including the little-known and enigmatic tiny Piculets, mainly of South America, are described and illustrated, and information is given on their distributions, habitats, and habits. Many of the subspecies depicted by Dave Nurney in his 64 magnificent color plates have never before been illustrated.
