Christopher Helm

Christopher Helm’s name has adorned some of the most cherished and authoritative bird books to have appeared anywhere in the world in the last 30 years.

Starting with Seabirds in 1983, a revolution in ornithology publishing, never before had there been a bird identification guide to match it, the Helm stable has grown into a series of groundbreaking identification guides to the birds of the world. The instant success of Seabirds, followed three years later by Shorebirds, ensured the Helm Identification Guides became a hallmark of quality for birders worldwide.

As well as the justly famous Helm Identification Guides, the Helm imprint has expanded to include the Helm Field Guides, Helm Photographic Guides, Where to Watch Birds - a series which covers birding almost everywhere in the world - a growing series of UK county avifaunas, and guides to identifying some of the most easily confused bird species.
