About this book

Originally published in German, this is the most complete and detailed single work on bird capture available. Drawing on extensive historical and international sources for information, the author describes trapping methods that do not harm birds, and also covers safe, humane ways of handling captive birds. Most taxonomic groups of land and sea birds are covered in detail, with all major techniques described and comprehensively illustrated. The author shows that these methods are also applicable to bats.
