About this book

Language: Spanish

Written by one of Europe's leading ornithologists and illustrated by two of the world's finest bird illustrators – Killian Mullarney and Dan Zetterström. Covering Britain and Europe, the book provides all the information needed to identify any species at any time of year, with detailed text on size, habitat, range, identification and voice.

Accompanying every species entry is a distribution map and colour illustrations (over 4000 in all) to show the species in all the major plumages (male, female, immature, in flight, at rest, feeding). The book is fully integrated, so that all this information appears on one spread, the ideal structure for use in the field. Each group of birds has an introduction, which covers the major problems involved in identifying or seeing them: how to organise a sea watching trip, how to separate birds of prey in flight, which duck hybrids can be confused with which species etc.

Summary in Spanish:
Guía de campo exhaustiva sobre todas las especies de aves que pueden verse en España, el resto de Europa, el norte de África y gran parte del Próximo Oriente.

Se tratan unas 900 especies con un orden sistemático y bien organizado, de las cuales 800 se exponen detalladamente; textos bien elaborados describen el tamaño, el hábitat, los rasgos característicos, las variaciones y la voz de la especie; más de 200 páginas con más de 4000 bellas ilustraciones muestran cómo puede variar el aspecto de diferentes especies según el sexo, la edad, la estación y la distribución; los mapas muestran la distribución actual de las especies.

Es uno de los mejores manuales de campo sobre aves en el ámbito internacional. Se trata de una obra de referencia tanto para principiantes como para expertos.
