About this book

Literature on the life history of birds is abundant and knowledge continues to grow. But there are few reference documents that compile this information so it is readily available without conducting extensive literature searches.

In this book, information on habitat, limiting factors, and status is summarized for 84 species of nonpasserines that occur regularly in Ontario. These topics are covered for the three primary avian seasons: breeding, migration, and winter. Habitat, nest sites, territoriality, site fidelity, annual reproductive effort, habitat loss and degradation, environmental contaminants, and a variety of other topics are covered in the species accounts. A map depicting breeding and wintering range is presented for each species, and illustrations by Ross James accompany each listing.

This will be an essential reference for wildlife biologists, environmental consultants, and planners preparing or reviewing environmental impact statements and environmental assessments. Serious birders will find it of interest as well. Although the book focuses on Ontario birds, it is highly relevant to adjacent provinces and states.

Media reviews
Birds of Ontario will be a very useful reference for environmental consultants and planners, but also an interesting read and a valuable information source for Ontario birders. A tremendous amount of material is summarized in the species accounts, and it is presented in a well written style. I strongly recommend this book. - Ron Tozer, Ontario Birds
