About this book

Language: French

The objective of this guide is to allow accurate identification of the feathers of European birds found in isolation (after natural moult). For this, it contains a determination key that is absolutely innovative, elaborated according to the colour, but especially according to the structure and the shape of the pen. Harvesting, conservation and identification methods, identification tools, placement of a feather on the bird, identification and description of the feathers of the most common species, all these points are clearly explained and richly illustrated. For this Delachaux guide, a large format has been adopted in order to respect the size of the feathers, and to show the intricacies of their identification.
