The warblers frequently colorful appearance and distinctive songs make them especially attractive birds to observe, but their quick, darting movements, often among the highest branches of the trees, can make it difficult to tell one species from another.This book is a handy beginners pictorial guide to the identification of forty-nine wood warbler species that commonly nest in the United States and Canada. Barth Schorres outstanding color photographs help you distinguish each species. (Both males and females are usually shown when they differ significantly in appearance.)
