About this book

Language: French

This guide covers difficult identification issues by looking at tricky species pairs or groups of birds, and comparing and contrasting their respective features. Designed as a field companion, it supplements the standard field guides and provides much additional information. As well as detailed texts, Le Guide Expert de l'Ornitho includes extensive illustrations of all relevant ages and plumages of the species concerned.

Summary in French:
Ce guide de référence permet d'identifier les espèces européennes les plus difficiles, en fournissant des indications sur leur identification dans la nature, où la perception instinctive de la silhouette, du vol, du comportement et des cris sont tout aussi importants et qui, tous réunis, constituent le "jizz", à savoir l'allure et l'impression générale de l'oiseau.

Les illustrations permettent de comparer par paires ou par groupes les caractéristiques des espèces présentant des difficultés d'identification. Ce guide propose également des données extrêment précises, récentes et inédites sur le statut des espèces en France, que ce soit les nicheurs peu nombreux, les migrateurs occasionnels ou les espèces égarées.

- Des critères de reconnaissance actualisés des espèces d'Europe les plus difficiles à identifier.
- Les dénominations utilisées suivent les recommandations de la Commission de l'avifaune française.
- Un guide pour les ornithologues amateurs ou chevronnés.
