About this book

Lavishly illustrated, large format encyclopedia featuring over 450 species that regularly occur in Europe.

The characteristic appearance and behaviour of every species is clearly identified, and there is at-a-glance information on food, song, habitat, migration, breeding and behaviour. Each species is illustrated with a colour photograph and artworks to show different plumages and maps accompany each species to show distribution and breeding ranges.

Descriptions and facts make even the commonest birds worthy of new attention. Organised taxonomically, entries vary in length from longer articles about the more iconic species, to shorter descriptions for similar species within a family.
