B is for Bufflehead

Publish Date: November 2009

Professional nature photographer Steve Hutchcraft focuses on birds of North America in B IS FOR BUFFLEHEAD. Each photo is joined by a short description of the bird, cleverly told from the brid's point of view. An appendix of each bird contains more information such as range, habitat, food, and interesting facts. A fairly comprehensive bibliography of websites for additional information follows.

Full of absolutely stunning photos, B IS FOR BUFFLEHEAD is a delightful ABC book. Meticulously researched, the information and sometimes funny facts about these amazing birds of North America sets this book apart from others in the genre. Did you know a great heron will go to great lentghs not to lose a good meal? They will even choke themselves to death instead of giving up a too-large fish! Readers can't help but grow in appreciation and knowledge of our feathered neighbors.
