About this book

Reprint of Collins Birds by Behaviour originally published in 2003.
Five of the very best artists have been specially commissioned to illustrate birds as you will actually see them behaving in the field. Arranged according to family, the guide helps you distinguish between different species by their size, shape, where they can be found and how they behave. Each family section begins with an overview of their habitat and distribution and then focuses on different aspects of bird behaviour, thereby allowing direct comparison between superficially similar birds. Not only does this book help with identification, it also provides a unique visual insight into bird behaviour.
