About this book

Language: English with scientific, English and Korean nomenclature

A magnificent field guide, the first covering the whole of the Korean peninsula. The illustrations (depicting all species recorded in the Peninsula up to June 2014) are superb, with species descriptions and maps given on facing pages. At the front of the guide is a useful checklist of Korean birds. This second edition features approximately 50 more species than the first edition, for a total of 21 orders, 80 families, and 541 species. It includes information on when birds were first recorded on the peninsula, new subspecies, updated taxonomy incorporating new splits, and contains updated common names.
