About this book

This second edition has been reformatted for easier use and now features quick-find tabs and an index. The first section of the book comprehensively covers the history, biology and behavior of birds. Bird physiology, biological systems and anatomy are explained in easy-to-understand terms and annotated illustrations. The second section consists of an authoritative world checklist of bird species. The birds are organized by taxonomic order and listed by common and Latin name.

If the reader is looking for a single source of information about birds, this book is the answer.--William H. Adams"Science Books and Films" (01/01/2005)
