Toronto : Firefly Books, 2003.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 638-639) and index.
Authoritative, easy-to-read essays explain mating rituals, historical significance, evolutionary development, and nesting habits. Organized alphabetically by Family, this comprehensive encyclopedia, with contributions by a team of 100 distinguished zoologists, is illustrated with 2,000 color photographs and location maps. The text is well researched, cleanly organized and completely understandable to nonscientific readers. A Fact File for each bird family lists the relevant data including species, genus, global distribution, habitat, plumage, voice, nest, egg descriptions, diet and conservation status.--From publisher description.
