A 106-page book (with 91 high-resolution color photographs) about the life of the Great Blue Heron, in the rookery and beyond.
The book includes chapters about the species history, distribution, and migration; mate selection, nest building and breeding; raising chicks; chicks ready to leave the nest; and more.
The conservation message is a crucial aspect of the book, and proceeds from its sales will go to Audubon Minnesota.
The photographs were taken in Saint-Barthelemy in the French West Indies, Minnesota, and Florida.
A book for all ages. Easy reading, authoritative without being overly academic. Excellent photography (the book is image-intense).
