About this book

Following the success of the Complete Guide to British Birds, this book extends the range of the original work to cover Europe. New artwork has been produced, and includes morphs showing features such as changing plumage for selected species. The book covers some 462 species in all, including residents, regular migrants, and important vagrants from North America and Asia which are regularly recorded over Europe. It also includes comparison pages featuring ducks, geese, raptors, owls, and woodpeckers, and immature waders, gulls and wheatears, to help the positive identification of the sometimes easily confused members of these families. Detailed information on habitat, size and feeding habits, and background information on typical flight patterns, mating behaviour and unusual characteristics accompany each main species, together with advice on the best times and places to see rarer and more secretive birds. The new edition contains a free audio CD with the songs and calls of over 500 species.
