Product Details

Field Guide=A guide with illustrations or photographs for identification

Canada is home to nearly 500 species of birds. Some species, such as the Arctic Tern, breed in the far North during the summer and fly over other parts of Canada on their way back and forth from wintering grounds as far away as southern South America. Some species are present year-round.

Some species, such as certain warblers, weigh as much as a tea bag and some, such as Bald Eagles and American White Pelicans, are giants in the sky.

Some species such as the Peregrine Falcon, has been brought back from near extinction after DDT-containing pesticides threatened their existence. This comprehensive book includes:

  • ID, habitat, status, nesting, feeding, voice and similar species
  • Notes on each species' natural history, name origins
  • Specific behaviours and habits to watch for
  • Mnemonics to help remember species
  • update conservation activities underway in all provinces
  • Beautiful full-colour illustrations and photos for each species
  • Range maps
  • Birdwatching tips and best sites.
