Abstract
 
Description
Birds have always been of keen interest to man, since their beauty, song and fascinating behavior are conspicuously displayed and can be viewed and heard by even the most casual observer. This book, the result of over thirty years of research, is the most comprehensive ever published on the diverse bird life of the Great Basin.

In a concise and readable style, Fred Ryser discusses the life histories, physiology, behavior, ecology, and distribution of nearly four hundred species, including information on navigation, flight, territorial behavior, courtship, nesting, hunting, and the mystery and high pageantry of the great migrations that pass through the Great Basin each year. The book is illustrated with beautiful drawings, maps, charts, and more than sixty color plates.

Destined to become a standard reference work in American ornithology, "Birds of the Great Basin" is an important acquisition for anyone interested in western birds.
