Topics include: breeding, migration, wintering behavior and winter range, subspecies and intergrading, foraging and roosting behavior, plumage variations, urban adaptations, and range expansion.
Internationally known wildlife artists represented in this work include: Hans J. Peeters, Andrew Ellis, Mark Upton, Andrew Haslen, John Baker and N. John Schmitt.
