This is a reference for identifying wildfowl species. The text is divided by identification feature: size, shape, colour, bill shape and colour, voice, and behaviour. Characteristics noted in this section then direct you to the plates which are organized by family or "tribe". For each species there is also a detailed list of where it can be found with both breeding and wintering locations. Migration habits are also described. Also included are sections on names and classification, an index that includes both common and Latin names, and details of Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust reserves throughout the UK.
