About this book

Language: Portugese

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 3500 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.

This Portuguese version has been translated and revised by a technical team of SPEA - the Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds.
