Melanitta perspicillata on the British Columbia coast are the most numerous marine birds in autumn and spring; 650 000 were estimated .

Melanitta perspicillata on the British Columbia coast are the most numerous marine birds in autumn and spring; 650 000 were estimated in March 1978. The principal food is the mussel Mytilus edulis except for c3 wk in spring when herring eggs form the main diet. Many thousands of ducks, cormorants, gulls and grebes also feed on herring and their eggs. Pintails avoided the central lake in favor of the more shallow marsh units throughout MWA. Among the marsh units, pintails selected open and avoided heavily vegetated units at night. Open marsh units Were also selected during the day during Posthunt and, except in 1993, during Prehunt.

Natural History Series) or any other file from Books category. Texas is home to all four families of bats that occur in the United States, including thirty-three species of these important yet increasingly threatened mammals. Although five species, each represented by a single specimen, may be regarded as vagrants, no other state has a bat fauna more diverse, from the state’s most common species, the Brazilian free-tailed bat, to the rare hairy-legged vampire.

The Birds of North Central Texas is the culmination of a seven-year study by Warren M. Pulich, who set out to assess and evaluate the avifauna within the 25,000-square-mile area rather than to produce a field guide. With the aid of trusted observers, the author has compiled information on arrival and departure dates and peak numbers during migration for approximately 400 species.Texas' large variety of bird species is due to the convergence of four vegetation zones in the north central region of the state. In effect, species predominating in the moister eastern portions of the region mingle with species inhabiting the mesquite and cacti of the dry western reaches of the study area. The presence of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex and its numerous birders and visitors has ensured volumes of data for sorting and study.Ornithology students, visiting naturalists, environmentalists, and dedicated birders will find this book a valuable aid to understanding more clearly the status of birds in north central Texas.

Well written. A little disappointed that there were no pictures.

(Preface: this book is not written by W.L. Moody, Jr. - it is no. 9 of a series of natural history publications known as the W.L. Moody, Jr. series. The author is Warren M. Pulich.)

Warren Pulich, Professor of Ornithology at the University of Dallas, researched extensively to publish this definitive (as of 1988) source for historical abundance of species in North Central Texas. For Texas birders, this is THE authority on which later work has been based, including Jim Peterson's excellent and updated website, nctexasbirds(dot)com.

This book is designed to help persons living in north central Texas understand the status of the birds found in their counties. Although the counties have many similarities, the habitat of a particular county as well as the land use in the county may determine the presence or absence of a particular species. Besides data on the occurrence of the birds in the respective counties, information on habitat, breeding, and abundance, as well as other information applicable to a particular avian species, is presented in the book. It also brings avian records up to date (as of 1988) for each of the counties in the study area.

This book encompasses the following 32 North Central Texas counties: Archer, Baylor, Bosque, Clay, Collin, Cooke, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Hill, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Johnson, Kaufman, Montague, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rains, Rockwall, Somervell, Stephens, Tarrant, Throckmorton, Van Zandt, Wichita, Wilbarger, Wise, and Young.

As a long-time member and sometimes officer of Audubon Dallas, I highly recommend this book for any birder who wants more information than conveyed by a checklist when it comes to birds found in North Central Texas.
