Popular among both birders and the wider public, these elegant birds are among the best-studied waterfowl in the world. In Bewick's Swan, Eileen Rees tells the story of these birds in rich detail. Rees discusses population and distribution, breeding biology, wintering behaviour, food and feeding ecology, taxonomy and phylogeny, migration, and conservation. Personal recollections weave through the narrative. The result is a fascinating and highly readable monograph, showcasing one of the flagship species of wetland conservation. 296 pages.
