Illustrated with more than 450 photographs of birds, nests and nesting habitat, eggs, feathers, and wings of more than 70 species, this easy-to-use book provides an efficient way to identify nests and eggs of birds on Alaska's coastal tundra. Its range includes the Alaska Peninsula, the Bering and Chukchi sea coasts and east along the Arctic Coastal Plain past the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to the Canadian border. This book is constructed with tough, waterproof paper which will hold up under rigorous use in the field. Written by a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ornithologist with 15 years of experience in Alaska, this book is a valuable resource for biologists and naturalists, and a unique addition to any birder's personal library.
