About this book

This book will help readers to learn about the birds they see around them using the simplest and most obvious identifying feature - colour. The bird species in this book are grouped into sections of the most prominent colours displayed during a particular phase of development. Each entry includes information about habitat, abundance, size, status (meaning whether a bird is endemic, native or introduced), range, conspicuous features & differences between the similar species. Location information will assist the user in pinpointing where a species is most commonly seen, geographically and by type of environment, for example, at the beach or in the forest.
