"Canada has always been the home of an extraordinary range of birdlife, from the majestic golden eagle to the tiny winter wren, from the rock ptarmigan to the plains-loving prairie chicken. Birds of Canada features twenty-four of the country's most beautiful and interesting birds, brought to life by two of the world's best known and respected ornithological illustrators. Canada goose, starling, mallard, bald eagle, shoveler, willow grouse, ring-necked pheasant and golden-crested kinglet are featured in their habitat in these evocative and highly detailed paintings by Maurice Pledger and Trevor Boyer, paintings that are ably complemented by an accessible and informative text by an authority in this field which, together with numerous supporting line drawings and sketches, gives fascinating insight into the birds' lifestyles, feeding and breeding habits. Spectacularly illustrated and lavishly produced, Birds of Canada is a fitting tribute to the richness and variety of Canadian bird life".
