About this book

Language: Portuguese with English, Spanish, Portuguese and scientific nomenclature

This is the second edition, revised and updated, of the most complete field guide for the identification of birds in Portugal.

It treats the species present in all Portugal’s geographical areas; Continental Portugal, its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), and the Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores, Madeira and the Savage Islands. The book describes field identification characteristics, habitat, migratory status, distribution and conservation status of all regularly present species and common vagrants. Includes an appendix with a summary of other occasional species indicating their geographical origin and total number of sightings per region. Compared to the first edition, the texts have been completely updated, as is the taxonomy, which now follows HBW and the Birdlife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World.

The book is richly illustrated with 253 maps (100 of them new) detailing the areas of presence throughout the year, and plates with more than 800 colour illustrations, many improved and others new, showing the main details for the identification of species in the field. A total of 525 species are described, 49 more than in the first edition. Names of birds are given in Portuguese, Spanish and English, plus scientific names. A new feature is the linkage to videos, photographs and sounds by means of QR codes linking each species to Lynx's Internet Bird Collection.
