Book doesn't go into any detail about the birds, but Audubon's plates are wonderful. Great intro book to better ones.
this book contains beautiful reproductions of all of audubon's prints. i this book defines coffee table book, but unlike other coffee table books this one demands to be left open. i open it to a new page every day - my coffee table is so uncluttered now! also, the book has a 50 page forward on audubon, conservation, and art. i found a painting by eckelberry called 'black skimmers' which, i must have.

The biggest and heaviest book in my collection!
Picked this up at Housing Works several months back. Incredibly detailed illustrations. Good table of contents, no index.
The plates are gorgeous! The art itself makes the book well worth the price.
