About this book

European equivalent of the authors' Birder's Handbook, which covered North American species. It covers 515 species that breed in Britain, Europe and adjacent parts of the Middle East and North Africa, and offers at-a-glance details on diet, displays and mating, nests and eggs, wintering, conservation status, and much more. In addition to the information on each species, there are also 150 essays covering various topics in ornithology. There are also full indexes of English and scientific names, and species names in French, German, Dutch, Spanish and Swedish. An invaluable reference work.
