Hummingbirds of North America

The Photographic Guide

Published by Academic Press

The first-ever guide to focus on the field identification of North American hummingbirds. Illustrated by over 200 stunning photographs picked specifically to show identification criteria, the book also includes newly discovered field marks. All 22 species found in North America are described, plus 4 more that can be expected as vagrants or occasional visitors in the near future. The problems posed by hybrids receive special attention as well as the identification of females and juvenile males. Steve Howell is well known as a tour guide and an expert on the birds of the USA and Mexico. Providing in-depth coverage not available elsewhere, you will find all of the information needed to identify any North American hummingbird you see.
