What happened to this bird's left foot - it seems to be missing.

Lisa - there are a lot of books available with avian photography, it depends what specifically you are looking for. The best approach is to determine if you want a specific region and then do an online serach. I purchase some of my avian books from Amazon.

Is there a book that shows all these birds to purchase?
