About this book

An intermediate guide providing a unique combination of identification artwork with photographs and sketches illustrating bird behaviour. Each spread is designed to show similar-looking species together for easy identification. This comprehensive guide has detailed identification illustrations showing the male, female, and juvenile plumages for every species. Alongside the artwork for each species, a colour map shows breeding and wintering locations, so you know when and where you are likely to see it. There are also clear voice descriptions of songs and calls. Species are arranged in families, and are accompanied by 'notebook' pages describing and illustrating habitats, breeding and feeding behaviour, and flight patterns.
