About this book

Please note, this is a reissue of Understanding Bird Behaviour, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.

The way birds behave is one of the vital keys to accurate identification and Understanding Bird Behaviour provides the experienced instruction needed to understand and get the most out of watching birds. Understanding Bird Behaviour covers all the fundamental types of bird behaviour, including movement, feeding, breeding, migration, navigation, distribution, range, life and death, all of which are illustrated with beautiful photographs. There is a whole section dedicated to the behaviour of different species groups, from divers and grebes through to sparrows, buntings and finches.
