Description

* Another breathtaking collection from the photographer behind Wings in the Wild * Focuses on the springtime rituals of birds from all around the world * Text by the editor of Birder's World magazine With more than 200 stunning images by one of the country's top nature photographers, this beautiful and informative book tells the age-old story of how birds migrate to their nesting grounds, select a mate, establish a nest site, and raise their young in the wild. The nesting cycle starts when early migrants return to snow-covered breeding territories. It includes colorful courtship displays; intricate nest-building techniques; egg laying, brooding, and hatching; and the never-ending hunt for food. It also includes ingenious methods of protection and the miraculously quick growth of chicks. It can end with a fall migration flight thousands of miles long. Songbirds, owls, hummingbirds, shorebirds, raptors, waterfowl...All engage in breeding rituals, and all are included here. Featuring a wealth of information conveyed by words and pictures, this handsome book offers a fascinating look at a rarely observed world.
