G'day all,
I would like to recommend Dennis Paulson's "Shorebirds of the Pacific Northwest" to Australian Shorebird/Wader watchers.
It was published by University of Washington Press 1993 and republished with corrections 1998
It is a comprehensive easy to read 406 page book that includes 22 pages of citations.
Each species are usually described by
- Distribution
- Northwest status
- Habitat and behaviour
- Structure
- Plumage
- Identification
- In Flight
- Voice
- Subspecies
- References
Andrew Isles lists it at A$57.00
FYI other Wader books are listed in the Bibliography section of Dick & Jean Hofmann's "The Shorebird Watcher"
I am sure Dennis Paulson would give full justice to any quality photos of our shorebirds provided to him. His new book would become a further necessary reference for us southern hemisphere birdos.
