About this book

Language: French

This field guide that offers a complete identification reference to all of the sandpipers, plovers, stints and other waders found in Europe, Asia and North America. Plates (by Stephen Message, a much admired artist) show birds at rest and in flight, in every plumage variant likely to be encountered in the region. Species have been grouped, especially on the flight plates, so that similar species are shown close to each other. Facing text summarises key identification pointers to complete a quick-reference, field-friendly guide to this difficult and challenging group.

Summary in French:
Ce guide en deux parties – reconnaître les oiseaux posés et en vol – permet une identification complète grâce aux nombreux détails de plumage. La taille des illustrations, particulièrement mises en valeur, permet également de pointer avec précision les particularités de chaque espèce qui, pour l’occasion, sont présentées en fonction de leurs ressemblances, et non selon l’ordre systématique.
