The main text presents complete basic information on the breeding cycle of each species, summarized in a natural sequence: nest habitat, nest-site, nest construction, breeding season, eggs, incubation and nesting and nestling period. Over 100 black-and-white drawings of nests and nestlings and identification keys provide valuable information on the identification of the nests, eggs, and nestlings of the species. Sixteen color plates show a wide range of typical young, mostly of species with precocial, or downy nestlings. A further 48 color plates show the eggs of 597 species (some with examples of the natural variations commonly encountered.)

Nests, eggs, and nestlings of North American birds by Paul J Baicich( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Guide to the Nests, Eggs, and Nestlings of North American Birds provides a thorough, species-by-species guide to the breeding biology of the birds of North America. Some 670 breeding species are described in full, covering the birds of a vast area, from the Arctic to the southern boundary of the continental United States. The main text presents complete basic information on the breeding cycle of each species, summarized in a natural sequence: nest habitat, nest-site, nest construction, breeding season, eggs, incubation and nesting and nestling period. More than 700 color and line illustrations provide valuable information on the identification of the nests, eggs, and nestlings of 597 species. The book covers perhaps the most fascinating aspects of North American bird life, their reproduction and the care of their young, essential elements in the survival of any species. The book summarizes all that is known of this crucial part of a bird's life cycle, and by omission, points to what is yet unknown and may yet be discovered by the scientific ornithologist and birder alike. If your fascination in the nests, eggs, and nestlings of North American birds centers on identifying them in the field, you will find this book essential. If conservation is also a concern, you will appreciate the value of understanding the breeding requirements and biology of even the most common of species. This book will prove invaluable whatever your interest in North American birds

Welche Nester bauen die einzelnen Vogelarten und aus welchem Material? Wie viele Eier werden gelegt, von welcher Größe, Form und Farbe sind sie? Wie sehen die Nestlinge beim Schlupf aus und wie entwickeln sie sich? Diese und zahlreiche andere Fragen zur Brutbiologie der europäischen Vögel werden in diesem Feldführer anschaulich beantwortet. Der Führer ergänzt damit in einmaliger Weise die gängigen Vogelführer, die zum Ansprechen der Vögel ausschließlich erwachsene oder fast erwachsene Vögel heranziehen. Die wichtigsten Brutvögel Europas und angrenzender Gebiete sind in diesem Buch erfasst. Zeichnungen von typischen Nestformen und Farbtafeln mit über 150 Jungvögeln, teilweise mit den Mustern der Sperrachen, sowie Farbabbildungen aller Eier ergänzen den Text. Gleichzeitig ist dieser Führer ein wichtiges Rüstzeug für denjenigen, der Brutvögel in ihrem Lebensraum schützen will, da nur die genaue Kenntnis der Neststandorte und der Brutbiologie einen wirkungsvollen Schutz der Ressourcen ermöglicht
