including habitat, distribution, plumage, migration, feeding,
courtship, predators and mortality.
A separate appendix includes weights of virtually every species
and subspecies of waterfowl.
Concise full-color range maps accompany each species account.
The more than 750 beautifully reproduced photographs represent a
lifetime of intensive research and field study by the author.
This definitive volume on the Anseriformes will prove invaluable
