Synopsis

"Bird" is the ultimate illustrated guide to every species that regularly breeds in or visits Europe. In this expanded new edition, each species is covered in more detail than ever. Up to 20 illustrations are provided of each species; males, females, juveniles; season by season; at rest and in flight. A colour photograph is provided of each bird in its natural habitat or exhibiting an aspect of its behaviour; a scale diagram shows how the bird compares to another commonly known species; a distribution map shows at a glance where the bird can be seen; similar species are compared to prevent common identification mistakes; and, fascinating facts provide a wider and richer portrait of the bird. No other book manages to do all this with such depth of research or such exquisitely beautiful illustrations.
