About this book

Complete guide to the 145 species of rail found throughout the world. In regional field guides, information on field identification is usually superficial or inadequate. This book is the first to give comprehensive information on field identification (including voice), covering all species and races, and describing for the first time the immature and juvenile plumages of many species. It also provides a detailed summary of our current knowledge of all aspects of rail biology and behaviour.
