Product Description

About the Author

David Beadle grew up in Kent, England, where he had no interest in the natural world until he was gripped by an obsession with birds in his late teens. It was while working at a bird observatory that David became interested in moths, an interest that soon grew to an all-consuming passion. He now lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his wife and son, and he has photographed more than 2,000 species of moths in that province alone.

In addition to his work with moths, David has contributed to over thirty books and countless journals, including New World Warblers and A Field Guide to the Birds of Chile.

Seabrooke Leckie is a biologist and naturalist, writer and photographer, but most of all a lover of nature. She holds a B.Sc.H. in Zoology and has worked on field research contracts in many parts of the continent, from California to Québec, British Columbia to Ohio, as well as her home province of Ontario. She discovered moths quite by accident one summer while away on contract, and they've since become her number one passion. Birds are her second interest; she is a federally licensed bird bander and volunteers each summer with a local bird research organization. She lives in rural eastern Ontario with her man, two dogs and three cats. Most afternoons you can find her outdoors, peering closely at flora and fauna, camera in hand. She blogs her discoveries at her website, seabrookeleckie.com.

I am very disappointed with the misleading title of this guide, ".... Moths of Northeastern North America".
Are the Atlantic provinces of Canada not part of Northeastern North America ? ? ! !
The range maps stop in southern Quebec and western New Brunswick. And to add insult to injury, the lead authors of this publication are Canadian. Shame on you, you should know better.
Future editions should be renamed "Field Guide to Moths of the Northeastern United States and Southern Canada", or the range maps and distribution notes should reflect the geographic region claimed !

A comprehensive look at our larger moths, a great guide to have on hand when hanging around a light in the middle of summer! The authors give distribution maps for many of the species (~60-70% with maps) to give an idea of where you may find each species in the northeast. The flight period data may also be helpful to narrow down the season that you may find some species, or to help separate species. Well worth the buy and definitely worthwhile to have on hand on those hot summer evenings!

Tons of info: Also great for the northwestern part of North America.... Just ignore the maps: they show only NE US, not NE North America. But still fabulous work!

What Fun! Now I know what lurks on the side of our house and also flutters at our lights in the yard! Some huge; some small.....we now can learn the fascinating differences from one another of these Moths AND why they are so different in habitat, feed , design and purpose to the Butterflies in North America. Thanks again to Peterson Field Guides.....I bought three different copies for Christmas! Perfect species, perfect world!

Northeastern moth Bible, that, along with a couple key websites (some listed in the book), can identify practically any moth you find. I bring this book the every black light sermon.
