Whether you are listening to the distinctive drumming of a woodpecker from high in the trees or watching a raptor soar above the canopy, woodland birds are among some of our most extraordinary and vulnerable species. But do you know a Nuthatch from a Treecreeper? And can you tell the difference between a Short-eared Owl and Barn Owl when it's soaring overhead? The UK's woodlands are home to a diverse collection of our most beautiful wild bird species.
RSPB ID Spotlight: Woodland Birds is a reliable fold-out chart that presents illustrations of 60 of our most widespread and familiar woodland birds by renowned artist Stephen Message.
- Species are grouped by family and helpfully labelled to assist with identification
- Artworks are shown side by side for quick comparison and easy reference at home or in the field
- The reverse of the chart provides information on the habitats, behaviour, life cycles and diets of our woodland birds, as well as the conservation issues they are facing and how the RSPB is working to support them
- Information on successful UK habitat management programmes and other campaigns to help our woodland birds are also included
The RSPB ID Spotlight charts help wildlife enthusiasts identify and learn more about our most common species using accurate colour illustrations and informative, accessible text.
