Nunavut is a land of islands, encompassing some of the most remote places on Earth. It is also home to some of the world’s most fascinating bird species. Birds of Nunavut is the first complete survey of every species known to occur in the territory. Co-written by a team of eighteen experts, it documents 295 species of birds (of which 145 are known to breed there), presenting a wealth of information on identification, distribution, ecology, behaviour, and conservation. Lavishly illustrated with over 800 colour photographs and 155 maps, this is a visually stunning reference work on the birds that live in and visit Nunavut.

"This report identifies 83 key terrestrial habitat sites for migratory birds in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. These sites support at least 1% of the Canadian population of at least one migratory bird species (or, in some cases, subspecies). Sites also include marine and freshwater habitats where the value of the terrestrial habitat is intimately linked to the presence of aquatic habitats. Data for the identification of sites were drawn from existing published and unpublished reports and personal communications. In this updating of key terrestrial habitat sites in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, eight new sites have been added and two have been removed. Four sites listed in the previous edition have been combined under a single location. Many of the sites recognized in earlier listings have been revised, some quite substantially. Eighteen of the key terrestrial habitat sites overlap with existing Migratory Bird Sanctuaries, and two sites overlap with National Wildlife Areas. This report describes key terrestrial habitat areas that are essential to the welfare of various migratory bird species in Canada. It serves as a statement of the interest of Environment Canada's Canadian Wildlife Service in lands where special wildlife conservation measures may be required, and it is offered as a guide to the conservation efforts of other agencies having interests in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut."--Abstract.

Birds of Prey of the West and its companion volume, Birds of Prey of the East, are the most comprehensive and authoritative field guides to North American birds of prey ever published. Written and lavishly illustrated with stunning, lifelike paintings by leading field-guide illustrator, photographer, and author Brian Wheeler, the guides depict an enormous range of variations of age, sex, color, and plumage, and feature a significant amount of plumage data that has never been published before. The painted figures illustrate plumage and species comparisons in a classic field-guide layout. Each species is shown in the same posture and from the same viewpoint, which further assists comparisons. Facing-page text includes quick-reference identification points and brief natural history accounts that incorporate the latest information. The range maps are exceptionally accurate and much larger than those in other guides. They plot the most up-to-date distribution information for each species and include the location of cities for more accurate reference. Finally, the guides feature color habitat photographs next to the maps. The result sets a new standard for guides to North America's birds of prey. Lavishly illustrated with stunning, lifelike paintings Written and illustrated by a leading authority on North American birds of prey Depicts more plumages than any other guide Concise facing-page text includes quick-reference identification points Classic field-guide layout makes comparing species easy Large, accurate range maps include up-to-date distribution information Unique color habitat photographs next to the maps
