About this book

Co-published with Lynx Edicions

Birds are ubiquitous features of daily life, so much so that they are often taken for granted. But even the casual observer is aware that birds don't fill our skies in the number they once did. That awareness has spawned conservation action that has led to notable successes, including the recovery of some of America's most emblematic species, such as the Bald Eagle, Brown Pelican, Whooping Crane and Peregrine Falcon. Despite this, a third of all American bird species are in trouble.

This guide presents a classification system and threat analysis for bird habitats in the United States and offers a thorough and scientifically credible assessment of threats to birds. It also includes a new list of birds of conservation concern along with illustrations and original range maps.

Media reviews

"[...] ABC seemed to have two goals for The American Bird Conservancy Guide to Bird Conservation. The first is for it to be an authoritative reference on bird conservation in the Americas. Mission accomplished. The second is to engage the birdwatching community in conservation. This is arguably the more important of the two. By producing such a beautiful, informative, and inspiring book, I think there’s a good chance of meeting this goal, too. Birder’s World said: “Hands down, this is the most important book of the year, one every birdwatcher should own.” I agree wholeheartedly."
– Grant McCreary (02-01-2011), read the full review at The Birder's Library

"The particular beauty of this book is that it's not just another shout of crisis. It also lays out a concrete and achievable plan of long-term action to safeguard our country's rich bird life [...] Even if you're only a little bit interested in birds, and have never thought much about bird conservation, you'll appreciate the visual power and intellectual scope of these pages."
– Jonathan Franzen
