Summary

Most birds that live in grasslands and deserts are ideal subjects for birders, since they have adapted to a habitat with few or no trees or tall woody vegetation. In this colorful, comprehensive guide, Scott Leslie profiles and photographs some of the most common species, including doves, sparrows, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, and songbirds. The book provides a cross-section of nearly 100 key species, each one fully profiled in sections on habitat, appearance, behavior, food, migration, sounds, family life, related species, the latest scientific information on conservation, and a range map. This informative guide also conveys the need to protect the fragile habitats upon which these birds depend, and will inspire readers to get out on the land and experience just how fascinating and beautiful these birds and their respective habitats are.
