At the Water's Edge: Wading Birds of North America

At the Water's Edge: Wading Birds of North America
de John Netherton(Ed. Voyageur Pr) Isbn : 0896582337
9.46 €
Were Audubon alive, he'd drop his pen and paint and let Netherton catalog our feathered friends. Though limited in scope to just wading birds, the book's well enough done that it makes one hope Netherton will proceed to the other varieties of North American birds and produce similar high-quality tomes. Here he depicts all the types of wading birds--basically, herons, egrets, ibises, cranes, and storks. His color photos make it easy for readers to say, "I've seen that one." Of course, the hefty volume will be impossible to lug out into the field for a day's watching, but there are lots of good guidebooks out there, and in this nonguide, Netherton has struck that delicate balance between text and pictures perfectly--were there too much of either, this would be either a "serious" bird book or...

The Ghost with Trembling Wings

The Ghost with Trembling Wings
de Scott Weidensaul(Ed. North Point Press) Isbn : 0865476683
20.69 €
Weidensaul writes superbly about animals and his role as an amateur naturalist in studying them, as he showed in Living on the Wind (1999) on migratory birds. Here his subject is the search for lost species, often as a participant. Among the species are Semper's warbler, the golden toad and the ivory-billed woodpecker. Most searches fail, but Weidensaul describes some successes: the rediscovery of lost species, including Gilbert's potoroo, the large Jamaican iguana and the Congo bay owl. Imagining [a rediscovery] leads to a germ of hope, he writes, and hope sometimes leads to belief, to obsession and piles of old maps, to fruitless expeditions and squandered life savings. All of which would seem a sad and farcical pathology, except that just often enough, some lucky searcher hits pay dirt,...
