About this book

The key field guide to European birds. This is a completely revised and reworked single volume edition of Lars Jonsson's original works which were published in five volumes – including the sought-after Birds of the Mediterranean and Alps – and is essentially a completely new book. Most of the original plates have been repainted, and the text rewritten to take account of recent advances in taxonomy and identification. This new edition also includes three-colour distribution maps. Text, plates and maps face each other on the same pages. There are introductory sections on feathers, topography, silhouette, actions, shape and size, moult, plumage terminology, colour variation, voice, migration, vagrants, and systematics.

Also available in Spanish.
