Naturalist William Burt is known for seeking out wild places and elusive birds--and none fit the bill quite so well as the creatures featured in this book. This may well be his break out book, featuring the downy young of the wetlands, whose images are full of character and appeal. Most of these birds have never been captured on film until now. From the comic-monster herons to the fuzzy ducklings and stick-legged sandpipers, these tots have personality and spunk. In the wetlands, they come together, drawn by one essential need: for water. These babies then, are birds that get their feet wet; this book is one for bird lovers, naturalists, photographers, and animal lovers."A perfectionist whose photographs of shy and elusive birds of the wetlands are unquestionably the finest ever taken." -Roger Tory Peterson"What really comes through, in the writing and the photographs, is his deep and sensitive appreciation of the uniqueness of each of these most intriguing birds."--David Allen Sibley

Amazing photos of water birds. So close-up in many cases I wondered if the photographer was being too invasive of the birds' territories and nesting spots.
