About this book

Language: French

Very present in our everyday life, sparrows are still largely unknown. Robust, they know how to use their ingenuity to obtain their pittance and survive in often hostile conditions. In this richly illustrated book, the reader learns to know and recognize the five species that breed in Europe; some are easy to observe and identify because they live in our towns and villages all the time. Once ubiquitous in towns, the sparrow is disappearing quickly and recent studies suggest that it does not withstand air pollution ... Like us.

- A complete work on the house sparrow, the Spanish sparrow, the Eurasian tree sparrow, the rock sparrow and the white-winged snowfinch.
- A rich and precise collection of photographs.
- Pedagogical authors who combine scientific knowledge and varied cultural references.

Summary in French:
Très présents dans notre vie quotidienne, les moineaux sont pourtant encore largement méconnus. Robustes, ils savent faire preuve d'ingéniosité pour se procurer leur pitance et survivre dans des conditions de vie souvent hostiles. A travers cet ouvrage à l'iconographie riche, le lecteur apprend à mieux connaître et reconnaître les cinq espèces qui se reproduisent en Europe ; certaines sont facile à observer et à identifier, car elles vivent à longueur d'années dans nos villes et nos villages. Autrefois omniprésents dans les villes, le moineau disparaît rapidement et les dernières études laissent à penser qu'il supporte mal la pollution atmosphérique ... Comme nous.

- Un point complet sur le moineau domestique, le moineau espagnol, le moineau friquet, le moineau soulcie et la niverolle alpine.
- Une iconographie riche et précise.
- Des auteurs pédagogues qui allient savoir scientifique et références culturelles variées.
