About this book

Birdwatching in Ireland covers the whole process of appreciating birds on a generic level to the specific methods of identifying different species of birds. It is illustrated throughout with stunning full-colour images taken by some of Europe's leading bird and wildlife photographers. Part one covers many subjects from choosing the right binoculars to a more advanced understanding of how birds use their feathers and beaks. It looks at Ireland as a bird-watching country, and examines the different Irish seasonal migrations.

It explains how and why birds communicate, their various nesting strategies, why Ireland has lost some birds and gained new ones, and examines the concept of what makes a species a species. Part two begins with 'Eric Dempsey's Ten Steps to Bird Identification'. This is Eric's own original, tried-and-tested method for the identification of Ireland's birds. It provides the best techniques to identify all the species you might encounter, from garden birds to ducks and geese, from owls to warblers and gulls. Written in a relaxed and easy-to-read style, and rich with breath-taking photographs, "Birdwatching in Ireland" is the book for anyone who has an interest in Ireland's birds.
