About this book

Malta may be small and densely populated, but it too has its breeding birds. The list is not long, but this makes the birds all the more precious to study and to protect. Too many species that once nested have been lost, often due to human ignorance or indifference. One way to help these breeding birds is to spread awareness about them, and this book seeks to do just that.

Species by species, the book puts all the breeding birds of Malta in the limelight, tracks their nesting habits and habitats, and shares secrets learned from decades of observation and study. It delves into old records and history of past breeding birds, but also follows the very latest developments about exciting new species on the scene.

Most of all, this book celebrates the beauty and vitality of this special group of birds that make Malta their home.
