About this book

Common, numerous, and often easy to observe, ducks and geese are nonetheless sometimes difficult to identify. This straightforward introduction to ducks and geese will help you put a name to almost every duck or goose you'll find in the wild. It offers large, colourful photos of every species found in North America -- dabbling ducks, diving ducks, and geese -- as well as the loons, grebes, and other waterbirds you're most likely to see. In most cases, both a male and a female in breeding plumage are shown. Accompanying text describes the species' habits, behaviours, characteristics, and calls -- information that will help anyone appreciate these wild creatures and make a positive ID in the field.
