Images of spring courtship, from hooded mergansers briskly raising their white crowns to pintail drakes crowding a hen in aerial chase, lead to summer scenes, as a Pacific brant glares vigilantly from her nest and baby wood ducks peer from a tree cavity before tumbling out. Autumn and winter bring flocks southward; snow geese rise against barred clouds in Manitoba; hunters, dogs, and decoys wait a sunrise on the Chesapeake Bay." 100 full-color photogrpahic illustrations with many full and double-page.
