About this book

The least known of the Icteridae were probably best known to Alexander Skutch, who studied the birds in a Costa Rican tropical valley for more than 50 years. This is the first study book devoted solely to the icterids, which combines his own observation with those of other naturalists to provide a comparative natural history and biology of this remarkable family.
