The Hummingbirds of North America by Paul A. Johnsgard is the only book dedicated to the identification, distribution and biology, both individual and comparative, of all hummingbirds that breed in North America. First published in 1983, this acclaimed volume has now been revised and expanded to include twenty-five Mexican species, such as the long-beaked long-throated and the forked-tailed emeralds, thus more than double the species coverage of the original edition. Complete accounts of each species examine the evolutionary history, anatomical and physiological specializations, and comparative ecology, behavior, and reproductive biology of this largest family of non-passerine birds. The individual beads are complemented by 24 full-color paints.

Including updated range maps, identification keys, and a bibliography that has been expanded to include literature on little-known Mexican species, the book is accessible to amateur birdwatchers and an authoritative volume for ornithologists.
