Description

A richly illustrated, portable field guide to flycatcher identification

The identification of Empidonax flycatchers and pewees can be a daunting challenge for even the most seasoned birder. Field Guide to North American Flycatchers takes bird identification to an entirely new level by training readers to observe subtle differences in structure, color patterns, and vocalizations before delving into the finer details of a particular species. Because the plumages of flycatchers are so similar, this one-of-a-kind guide uses illustrations that highlight slight variances among species that photos often miss. One of the last frontiers of bird identification is now accessible to everyone--once one knows what to look for.

  • Uses a holistic approach that makes flycatcher identification possible even for beginners
  • Features a wealth of beautiful illustrations that depict every species in North America
  • Shows how to observe subtle differences in structure, plumage contrasts, and vocalizations, which together create a distinctive overall impression of the bird
  • Includes detailed audio spectrograms and seasonal distribution maps for each species
  • Shares invaluable tips for successful identification in all kinds of field settings
  • Its compact size and field-friendly layout make it the ideal travel companion for any birder
