A video guide to the long-legged wading birds of the United States and Canada With close-up motion pictures and state-of-the-art synchronized sound, this video presents intimate portrait of the lives of twenty species of long-legged wading birds.

They court, build nests, raise young, and search for prey. It's a great introduction for beginning birders, and a fresh look at a little-seen behavior for those who know the waders well.
