About this book

Language: German

Der Kosmos Vogelführer (the German translation of Collins Bird Guide) is the most comprehensive book of its kinds for Europe, North Africa and Western Asia. Following the minor updates Collins made to its second edition in 2015, Kosmos has now incorporated these changes and released it as a third edition. A total of 900 species of birds – breeding birds, migratory birds, exceptional breeds, naturalized species – are shown in more than 4,000 colour drawings, detailing the different plumages, subspecies, and sexes. Explanations in the picture refer to important features and facilitate identification. Detailed texts describe size, habitat, characteristics, distribution and calls. Extensive changes due to recent developments in research on shearwaters, birds of prey, seagulls, pigeons, owls, thrushes, warblers and shrikes are explained. Current distribution maps with breeding and wintering areas, and migratory routes round off this standard work of the leading ornithologists and birdwatchers of the world.
