Herons of North America: Their World in Focus (Natural World)
Herons, the graceful predators of swamps, wetlands and lake margins, are often the abiding memory for birdlovers after a days birding in the marshes. For the general nature lover, they are a portrait symbol of the wild free places and the grandeur of the natural world.
North American herons live in a complex world. Most of them congregate in colonies either large or small, and they are joined by many birds who share their nesting sites. Most of these different species live together in harmony, but inevitably such gatherings attract predators and scavengers.
James Hancock, a veteran traveler and lover of herons the world over, gives a pocket guide in words and photographs to the lives of these birds and their, sadly, often endangered habitats. The book seeks to describe the many and varied creatures that make up the world of the Herons.
* Over 100 color photographs
* Anecdotes and personal observation bring the birds to life
* Reliable in fact, but not heavy-going
