About this book

This is a completely revised and updated edition of the best selling RSPB Handbook of British Birds. This unique guide provides a `biography' of each of the 300 commonest British bird species. It covers all aspects of field identification, using illustrations from the highly acclaimed Handbook of Bird Identification to show all common plumage forms. The text also covers behaviour, breeding biology, population, status, longevity and any other interesting facts about the species concerned. A detailed distribution map is provided for each species. The RSPB Handbook provides a complete, single source of basic information to our most familiar birds.

In addition the CD-ROM contains audio recordings of typical sounds each species. It also contains an ID database and a guide to the best birding areas in Britain. The CD-ROM may be downloaded to a Windows Mobile PDA.
