About this book

With over 200 images by one of the country's top nature photographers, this beautiful and informative book tells the age-old story of how birds migrate to their nesting grounds, select a mate, establish a nest site, and raise their young in the wild. The nesting cycle starts when early migrants return to snow-covered breeding territories. It includes colourful courtship displays; intricate nest-building techniques; egg laying, brooding, and hatching; and the never-ending hunt for food.
