This sturdy and comprehensive guide to European auks - with a strong emphasis on the British breeding species Puffin, Guillemot, Razorbill and Black Guillemot - is as informative as it is visually stunning and pays special attention to what is arguably the most popular member of the family, the puffin.
Auks, highly specialized birds whose body parts are perfectly adapted to the marine habitat as well as life on land, are a fascinating subject for any bird enthusiast. This book provides detailed information on the biology and habits of these stunning species.
The thorough text contains sections on taxonomy, habitat, migration, life cycle, food, predators, threats and conservation and the species in folklore. There is also a useful identification guide with two pages dedicated to each breeding species, including photographs.
With more than 200 pages filled with colour photos, charts, graphs and maps, this is the quintessential guide for nature and bird enthusiasts.
