Spoonbill habits is the life's work of the well-known etho-ecologist and nature conservationist Ernst Poorter. He was responsible, among other things, for the protection of the Oostvaardersplassen, where he could carry out an important part of his spoonbill research, and the protection of the Marismas de Santona in northwestern Spain, a coastal swamp where Spoonbills can catch their breath during the trek before they cross the Pyrenees. Spoonbill habits provide an impressive scientific report of half a century of research into the behavior and occurrence of the spoonbills in the Netherlands, France, Spain and Africa. Supported by many anecdotes and a photo section of more than 100 pages makes this book a very pleasant reading material for every bird lover.
