About this book

This beautifully illustrated mini field guide is first and foremost a garden bird identification guide containing detailed descriptions of the most commonly encountered species, as well as some rarities and birds you may only see flying overhead in gardens. Eighty-eight species, illustrated with more than 400 superb full-colour artworks, are covered. The book also includes general guidelines on food, feeders, nest boxes and other items that can greatly increase the presence of birds in your garden. A concise written account for each species covers data such as size, general description, voice, habitat, food, occurrence in gardens, and distribution in Britain and the near Continent. The easy-to-follow layouts and superb artworks aid quick and accurate identification, making the book an indispensable reference in the field as well as in the home and garden. Compact enough to fit in the pocket and packed with essential information, the book is additionally wrapped in a durable plastic wallet to protect it against the elements outdoors. Also included is a fold-out insert that can be used as a quick recognition guide to birds and their activities in gardens.
