Riassunto:

In this book, the only complete review of the world's herons currently in print, James Hancock distills his knowledge into a concise review of all 47 species and recognized subspecies. The text comprises a thumbnail sketch, including descriptions of the appearance, distribution, conservation status, feeding, and breeding ecology of each species. Over 150 wonderful color photographs, most by the author, show all the recognizable forms of each species, illustrating the variety and beauty of these birds. As a valuable reference and a fine photo collection, this book will find a place on the shelves of bird lovers everywhere.

Dal retro di copertina: Herons and Egrets are a striking and beautiful part of the wetland habitats the world over; a diverse group, though an easily recognised one through their conspicuous adaptations to their typical environment and aquatic food supply. Long legs and long, flexible necks with small heads with large spear shaped bills and bright eyes, angled for precise binocular vision, mark out these often large birds at a glance. Often bold in their behavior, they stalk the water margins and reedbeds in search of fish and amphibians, which they catch and consume with ruthless ease. More often than not, the sight of herons will be the abiding memory of a birdwatching visit to marshes and swamps the world over.
James Hancock has spent a lifetime in pursuit of herons and the secrets of their ecology. In this book, the only complete review of the world's herons currently in print, he distils his knowledge into a concise review of all 47 species and recognised subspecies. The text comprises a thumbnail sketch, and descriptions of the appearance, distribution, conservation status, feeding and breeding ecology of each species. Over 150 wonderful color photographs, most by the author, show all the recognisable forms of each species, illustrating the variety and beauty of these birds.
At once a valuable reference and a fine photo collection, this book will find a place on the shelves of bird lovers everywhere.
