New: Birds of Saskatchewan.

A  full-colour, comprehensive look at all of the birds that call  Saskatchewan home. 437 species of birds are documented in this 768 page compendium, a result of over ten years of work and several lifetimes of observation, research, and writing. This work celebrates Saskatchewan’s rich natural heritage, and acknowledges the efforts made to study and sustain each bird’s presence in the province. ​It is a record of change - of the birds who have come, those who remain, and those whose habitats are affected by changes in the environment​. Birds of Saskatchewan​ is indebted to the long-time editors of the project. Lead  author/co-editor Alan R. Smith is the scientist, the keeper of data, and provincial  documenter. Here he joins his mentors C. Stuart Houston, bird bander, history lover,  and prolific author, and Houston’s long-time friend, collaborator, and editor J. Frank  Roy, whose passion for birds, words, and images has helped to make this a publication  that we hope readers will appreciate.
