Howell, Steve NG.., Ian Lewington, Will Russell.

A comprehensive illustrated guide to the vagrant birds that occur throughout the United States and Canada. Featuring stunning colour plates, this book covers 262 species originating from three very different regions – the Old World, the New World tropics, and the world’s oceans. It explains the causes of avian vagrancy and breaks down patterns of occurrence by region and season, enabling readers to see where, when, and why each species occurs in North America. Detailed species accounts describe key identification features, taxonomy, age, sex, distribution, and status. This book provides unparalleled insights into vagrancy and avian migration, and will enrich the birding experience of anyone interested in finding and observing rare birds.
