About this book

Covers all 290 species of true finches and sparrows in the world - the families Fringillidae, Carduelidae, Estrildidae and Passeridae - but excluding the weavers (Ploceidae). As with previous guides, there is a comprehensive text covering field identification, voice, geographical variation, habitat & range, migration, food, habits and description. Full colour plates illustrate every species, with descriptive text and colour distribution maps facing the plates. There are introductory chapters covering general characteristics of the four families. This is a short-run reprint of the original edition of 1993.
