About this book

First published in hardback in 1997, this second edition of Hummingbirds of North America is now available in paperback.

The first edition was published in 1983, and this well illustrated and acclaimed volume was been revised and expanded for its 1997 second edition to include twenty-five Mexican species, thereby more than doubling the species coverage of the original edition. Full species-by-species accounts survey the evolutionary history, anatomical and physiological specializations, and comparative ecology, behaviour, and reproductive biology of this largest family of nonpasserine birds.

Media reviews

"Johnsgard is to be congratulated for once again condensing a vast literature into a very useful single volume, the best now available on hummingbirds."
The Auk

"The Hummingbirds of North America is an admirable success and I recommend it as good, informative reading."
The Wilson Bulletin

"A model of what such a book should be in attractiveness of design, color plates, other illustrations, and text [...] as colorful and unique as the species it describes."
Snowy Egret

"A treasury of information [...] A volume to take along for a season of hummingbird studies as well as to enjoy at home."
