About this book

Language: French

Among the approximately 850 species of birds found in Europe, some are common and other much rarer. Bird straying from their usual migration routes, buffeted by storms or depressions, victims of a policy mistake or the vanguard of a new strategy for migration or settlement across the species: there are many reasons for the rarity of some of them. They cross northern Europe to the south and vice versa, they cross the Atlantic, sometimes even from the Pacific, to the delight of birdwatchers.

This photographic guide presents 460 rare bird species in Europe or a large part of the European continent. For each species, the text includes a description, information about its voice, and its habitat. Maps show distribution during the breeding season in winter and areas where the species occur throughout the year. Furthermore, many photographs are used to show specific diagnostic characters to help identify the species correctly.

- The first photo guide on rare birds in Europe.
- Innovative, thorough and meticulously documented.
- 460 species, 2000 photographs: a bible for all ornithologists.

Summary in French:
Parmi les quelques 850 espèces d'oiseaux observées en Europe, certaines sont communes et d'autres beaucoup plus rares. Oiseaux égarés loin de leurs voies de migration habituelles, ballotés par des tempêtes ou des dépressions, victimes d'une erreur d'orientation ou testeurs d'une nouvelle stratégie de migration ou d'installation à l'échelle de l'espèce : autant de raisons pour expliquer la rareté de certains d'entre eux. Ils traversent l'Europe du nord au sud et inversement, ils franchissent l'Atlantique, parfois même proviennent du Pacifique, faisant le bonheur des ornithologues.

Ce guide photographique présente 460 espèces d'oiseaux rares, en Europe ou dans une large partie du continent européen. Pour chaque espèce, le texte comporte une description, des informations sur sa voix, son habitat ; une carte présente sa distribution en période de reproduction, en hiver et les zones où l'espèce est présente toute l'année. En regard, de nombreuses photographies permettent de signaler les spécificités diagnostiques permettant d'identifier l'espèce correctement.

- Le premier guide photographique sur les oiseaux rares d'Europe.
- Un travail innovant, rigoureux et méticuleusement documenté.
- 460 espèces, 2 000 photographies : une bible pour tous les ornithologues passionnés.
