This guide teaches birders to use the characteristics of wing types and feather morphology to identify feathers--not only by species but also by their place on the bird?s body. The introductory chapters give a detailed overview of the feather--how feathers developed, the parts of a single feather, and the variety of types of feathers on a bird. In the feather identification section, more than 400 color photographs show feather samples from 379 bird species from all over North America. Along with the wing type of the species and a map showing its range, several types of feathers are included for each bird; each feather is labeled with its type and its size. AUTHOR: S. David Scott has been working as an environmental educator since 2003, focusing on ecology and wildlife behavior. He lives in the Seattle area. Casey McFarland is a wildlife tracker and a tracking instructor and evaluator through Cybertracker International. SELLING POINTS: Over 400 photos of representative feathers from 379 species How to identify not only what bird a feather came from but also what kind of feather it is Range maps and wing type given for each bird 495 colour photographs
