An estimated 50 million Americans are serious recreational bird watchers. Among them is William Burt. For 16 years, Burt has pursued some of the world's toughest subjects: 20 of the least known, nearly mythical North American birds. In his latest book, Rare and Elusive Birds, he has used his talents as a photographer and bird watcher to compile an intimate look at some of the planet's most rarely seen birds. In addition to the images, the book also includes detailed accounts of the lives of these birds and the special challenges and successes Burt experienced on his quest to photograph them all. (Oct.)
