Travels and Traditions of Waterfowl
H. Albert Hochbaum
With the combined talents of naturalist, writer, and artist, H. Albert Hochbaum captures the varying moods of earth and sky and spirit of flight. For many years as director of the Delta Waterfowl Research Station in Manitoba, Canada, he has observed the ways of the waterfowl. In this book he portrays and discusses the flights and habits of the birds he has watched in that vast marsh country—the wild ducks, geese, and swans of North America.
“The entire work is in lay language with a delightful blend of the experiences of the naturalist and hunter with those of the scientist.” Science.
