About this book

Illustrated by Hilary Burn
A major bird identification guide, written by the author of Wildfowl and illustrated by one of the best known British wildlife artists. It is the first identification guide to one of the most widespread families in the world, the corvids, which includes jays, crows and magpies. There is an introductory section, followed by plates and captions, and finally the full systematic section. All 118 world species are described in detail, with notes on identification, age and sex differences, plus full distribution maps. Every species is comprehensively illustrated on the 30 colour plates, including for the first time, the Banggai Crow, a rare species known only from two specimens collected from a small island found off the east coast of Sulawesi.
