The book called "The Complete Birds of North America", is a book recommended to be part of any birders library. This book covers all the native and vagrant species of birds seen on the North American Continent. It provides information on all the birds listed on the ABA bird list.

The author of the book, “The Narrow Edge. A Tiny Bird, Ancient Crab & an Epic Journey,” adds that all along their migration, the birds face threats from rising seas, acidic seas inhibiting growth of the shellfish they eat and the shrinking of their Arctic nesting grounds.

The Karenia brevis red tide organism is a type of algae that emits a neurotoxin when it blooms. Deadly to fish, sea turtles, marine mammals and shorebirds that feed on affected fish, red tide also makes shellfish unfit to eat and can cause respiratory irritation in people, especially those with asthma, COPD or other respiratory diseases.

Shellfish Mariculture in Drakes Estero, Point Reyes National Seashore and Estero de Limantour, some fraction of which is exposed at low tide, are ecologically significant for wintering shorebirds and waterfowl, with at least 73 species being recorded in a series of mid-winter counts (White, ).

Show this book's table of contents. Galapagos Shorebirds are those species of bird, usually wading birds, that spend most of their time in coastal zones. Most shorebirds utilize resources found along beaches or rocky shores, feeding on shellfish or fish found in tide pools.

Like the seabirds, there are few endemic species on the Galapagos islands. Most are considered ‘residents’ whereby they breed in the Galapagos but are. Shorebirds are model organisms for illustrating the principles of ecology and excellent subjects for research.

Their mating systems are as diverse as any avian group, their migrations push the limits of endurance, and their foraging is easily studied in the open habitats of estuaries and Price: $ Shorebirds book.
