About this book

This volume completes the field handbook to all true songbird species – the Passerines. Over 1,000 species are described, with extensive information on habitat, range, habits and voice. For each species, there is a distribution map, based on the very latest data. The 52 colour plates by Guy Tudor illustrate over 700 of the described species. This is an important account of an increasingly threatened avifauna.
