The Pocket Guide to the Common Birds of Ireland is a detailed, compact field guide to the birds most likely to be encountered by ordinary birdwatchers. Beautiful colour plates highlight the important features, while the expert and accessible text explains clearly how to identify the birds: the calls, songs and diet of each species, and the habitat in which each is found. The up-to-date distribution maps enable the range of each species to be judged at a glance. The Pocket Guide to the Common Birds of Ireland, presented in an easy-to-follow layout, is perfect for beginner and expert alike, young and old.
