British Columbia has one of the richest assemblages of bird species in the world. This four volume work provides an unprecedented coverage of this region's birds, presenting a wealth of information on the ornitholigical history, habitat, breeding habits, migratory movements, seasonality, and distribution patterns of 472 species of birds. The text is supported by hundreds of full-colour pictures, including unique habitat photographs, detailed distribution maps, and beautiful illustrations of the birds, their nests, eggs, and young.
`What a surprise I received when I opened the package and found the large and handsome volumes...There is no superficiality here...the project shows what can be achieved through the well-coordinated cooperation of all with an interest in birds, from amateur to professional...These are landmark volumes.' Alex L.A. Middleton, Journal of Wildlife Management.
`To say I am overwhelmed is to understate my reaction to the incredible achievement that The Birds of British Columbia represents. The authors must be congratulated on what must be one of the most spectacular ornithological publications of the century. I am not exaggerating. The sheer volume of work, the magnificent maps, diagrams, and photos, the quality of the writing - all contribute to a stunning performance. These books will be a benchmark in regional ornithologies.' Gordon L. Maclean, University of Natal, South Africa.
