Illustrated. 8vo, light brown cloth, black lettering to spine. "The elusive American Woodcock, with its long bill, striped head and shoe button eyes, has long been a favorite of ornithologists andnaturalists. As a small game bird offering challenging hunting, it has att racted a growing number of sportsmen. Yet information on this fascinating bird has remained scattered and incomplete. Now, after more than fifteen years of research, Dr. William G. Sheldon presents a definitive study of the American Woodcock. His work is far more than a compilation of the findings of others. Using new techniques for trapping large numbers of birds on theirbreeding grounds in spring and summer, he has gathered wholly original inf ormation on courtship, survival, and mortality, as well as on many other aspects of woodcock life."
