Ideal for the armchair bird enthusiast or dedicated bird watcher, this book includes stunning full-colour photographs revealing individual species with unrivalled clarity. The 436 most commonly seen birds are pictured with plumage variations, and information on similar birds is provided to make differentiation easy, from game birds and waterfowl to shorebirds and swifts to owls, wood warblers, finches, and more.
