Poyser’s famous bird monographs with their distinctive white dust jackets are among the must-read bird books and have become a collector’s item too.

Parent series of: Poyser Country Avifaunas

Some of the early monographs are now highly collectable and all these popular ornithology books get the authoritative Poyser treatment, outlining evolution, biology, ecology, breeding, feeding, distribution and conservation. Each monograph has an enormous amount of ornithological detail and is written in an accessible format. Poyser, now part of the Bloomsbury stable, was formed to publish ornithology books and had early success with the Atlas of Breeding Birds in Britain and Ireland in the 1970s.
