About this book

The migratory waterbirds of the Pacific Flyway convert food, air, and water into a mileage plan that has few equals in the animal world. Set against a backdrop of stunning images from more than 120 internationally acclaimed photographers, Pacific Flyway shares the amazing stories of these migrants – a cast of characters that includes shorebirds, seabirds, and waterfowl.

Stretching from the Arctic regions of northeastern Russia, Alaska, and western Canada and along the Pacific coastlines of North, Central, and South America, the Pacific Flyway traverses some of our planet's greatest climatic and topographic extremes. Defined by water, the flyway encompasses a sweeping expanse of coastal and offshore marine ecosystems and an inland archipelago of freshwater wetlands. Hemispheric in scope, this integrated network of ecosystems is linked by its moving parts – the millions of migratory birds whose lives depend on this 10,000-mile (16,000-km) corridor as they travel between their breeding and overwintering grounds. With their ocean- and continent-spanning travels, waterbirds are our sentinels in a changing world – each of their journeys revealing the fraying edges of the web of life that sustains us all. Pacific Flyway perfectly blends amazing photography, science writing, and storytelling to illuminate the profound challenges faced by migratory birds and to inspire a longterm commitment to global conservation efforts.

  • Great photography!
    By Keith 4 Dec 2020 Written for Paperback
    Until I visited Alaska last year, the Pacific Flyway was something I had read about but had not paid much attention to. This was a major oversight on my part as this natural phenomenon stretches 16,000 km from the Arctic regions of north-east Russia, Alaska, and western Canada along the Pacific coastlines of North, Central, and South America. This book is striking through its outstanding photography by around 100 photographers with absolutely stunning images of wildfowl and waders at various staging posts along the route. In most bird books the photographs simply support the script, but without wishing to dismiss the carefully crafted texts, in this book, it is the other way around.

    There are ten chapters which describe different aspects of the migration. These cover aspects such as navigation, the power of flight, different food sources and the challenge of predation along the route. A useful chapter identifies and describes 47 stop-off locations that are favoured by the migrating birds. At various stages throughout the text individual case studies of species and their migration strategies are used as brief case studies.

    This is a beautiful book, and despite working my way through it at least three times, I am still finding images that I want to look at again and again. Apart from the crispness and colour of the chosen images I was astonished by the numbers of birds being shown together – such as thousands of Surf Scoters feeding on herring eggs in Alaska. Another memorable image was of several hundred Black-necked Grebes huddled shoulder to shoulder on a small area of open water on the frozen Yellowstone Lake in Wyoming.

Media reviews

"Visually stunning and expertly presented, [Pacific Flyway] spotlights bird migrations along the Pacific coast. In admiring prose, the authors marvel at seagulls, ducks, snow geese, and other 'feathered ambassadors.' Readers who want to learn about bird migrations will find this volume educational, while those simply in search of escape will find it a stimulating and scenic journey."
