Summary

The book describes the life of waterfowl, more specifically European species of ducks and palmipeds, sometimes with a few trans-Atlantic birds which can be found in Europe. The author has selected about one hundred sketches out of twenty thousand to give the reader an insight into the morphology, grooming rituals, flying techniques, communication methods, environments, feeding and reproduction methods, life cycles and protection means of palmipeds. Adaptability is a particular trait of aquatic birds. Some species can even sleep on the wing! The seasons pass through these superbly-illustrated pages of this book and the history of these birds, sometimes secret, often unrecognised, is unveiled as an eye-witness account live from nature.
