The habitats of Great Britain, Europe and Africa boast some of the most interesting and adaptable members of the avian world. This accessible and fully illustrated guide presents some of the rare and familiar species of these lands. From the grace of a mute swan to the striking casque of an African crowned hornbill, each has the power to enthrall. An expert, accessible introduction explains how birds evolved, their different habitats and habits, and gives practical tips on fieldcraft. A directory of over 550 species features intricate artworks, and describes everything from variable plumage to bill shapes, distribution, size, food, eggs and nests.
