Description
If you've ever been enchanted by a gaggle of goslings or fuzzy baby ducks, this book is guaranteed to delight. For more than 40 years, naturalist and photographer William Burt has sought out some of the most elusive birds ever caught on film—in particular the downy youngsters hiding in wetlands from Alaska's arctic tundra to the cypress swamps of Florida. Here are the comically awkward (stick-legged sandpipers and wide-eyed, long-necked herons and egrets) and the irresistibly cuddly (not-yet-red-eyed western grebes, riding on their parents' backs), with notes by Burt that let you feel as though you discovered the hatchlings right along with him, as well as his expert tips to help you create impressive photos of your own.

"A perfectionist whose photographs of shy and elusive birds of the wetlands are unquestionably the finest ever taken."—Roger Tory Peterson

"What really comes through, in the writing and the photographs, is his deep and sensitive appreciation of the uniqueness of each of these most intriguing birds."—David Allen Sibley
