Product Details
Waterfowl can be identified by using information about size, shape, color pattern, markings, behavior, habitat, range and calls. All clues are important, but by far the most important things to concentrate on for this group are shape and patterns of white. This guide features more than 25 species of ducks and includes both silhouettes that emphasize distinctive shape and placement of white, and full color images of both males and females. Sections address behavior, habitat, color patterns and other characteristics important for each species. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this guide support continued educational activities by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Made in the USA. Born in Springfield, Ohio, Kevin McGowan has had a lifelong interest in birds and mammals. He received a B.S. in Zoology from the Ohio State University in 1977, and an M.S. in Zoology from Ohio State in 1980 for a thesis on small mammals and their use of arthropods on reclaimed strip-mines. He then went to the University of South Florida where he received a Ph.D. in Biology in 1987 for work on the social development of young Florida Scrub-Jays (Aphelocoma coerulescens). He went to work at Cornell University in 1988 as a Curator/Research Associate in the Section of Ecology & Systematics (now the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology). He was promoted to Senior Research Associate in 1994. He was the principal caretaker of the bird and mammal collections, and conducted his own research. In addition, he taught classes at Cornell in specimen preparation, field collecting methods, the relationships of birds, and Neotropical canopy biology and canopy access. In July 2001, Kevin moved to the Education depa
