This is a French translation of Birds: ID Insights
The perfect field guide for any birder. Its unique layout, comparing the plumages of similar pairs and groups of species, makes it ideal for getting to grips with the more trick-to-identify birds found in Britain and the rest of Europe. And its handy pocket size is practical for taking out into the field.
It is based on a long-running series of identification features in Bird Watching magazine. Author Dominic Couzens and artist David Nurney have spent years compiling the field notes and artworks for Identifier les Oiseaux, and here their efforts are drawn together and made complete in a single volume which is easy to carry in the field and practical for birders to use.
In addition they have expanded the species list from the magazine series and added many more birds, including the likes of olivaceous, Sardinian and subalpine warblers, crested, thekla and short-toed larks, middle spotted woodpecker, booted and short-toed eagles, red-rumped swallow and crag martin. In total Identifier les Oiseaux covers more than 300 species, with easy-to-identify-birds such as Magpie and Kingfisher given minimal coverage or excluded so that the more difficult ID issues can be covered as fully as possible.

Chaque chapitre comporte une brève introduction détaillant les espèces présentées. Les points d'identification nécessaires à leur reconnaissance sur le terrain, grâce à des illustrations légendées, constituent le cœur de l’ouvrage.
