The first comprehensive field guide to North American warblers describes all 60 species in detail, from field marks and vocalizations to mating habits and preferred habitats. The 32 color paintings use the unique Peterson Identification System to indicate what distinguishes one bird from another. 141 color photographs show various plumages for each species, and 60 large color maps show species' ranges.
"The Peterson Field Guides series has added another weapon to its considerable arsenal of bird-identification guidebooks: a field guide devoted solely to the warblers of North America. Warblers, those small, sprightly, colorful songbirds that move north through the continent for the breeding season, have always delighted and simultaneously frustrated birders around the country. This field guide won't cure any cases of "warbler neck"--a condition brought on by extensive peering into the treetops--but it will help you to better decide just which species has your craned-neck attention. With color plates (including the "Peterson System" of arrows indicating important field marks), photographs, distribution maps, and textual information on species description, habitat, behavior, song, plumage variations, and migration patterns, this is an essential resource for birders."
