seasonal distributions, road conditions, annotated checklists, etc.:

This outstanding series, beautifully filmed and edited by Michael Male
and Judy Fieth, covers Sparrows, Waders, Western Warblers, and Eastern
Warblers. Natural history, field marks, vocalizations, and habitat all
contribute to the beauty and usefulness of these works.
