About this book

Language: Dutch

Why is the long-tailed tit not direct family of the great tit? If you know the family of a bird, it is subsequently easier to name a species. Vogelfamilies van Nederland will teach the reader to look at birds in a different way. This bird book is a useful supplement to existing bird guides and of interest to both beginning and expert birders.

Birds that belong to the same family, such as grebes, woodpeckers, or tits, show many similarities in appearance and behaviour. With that knowledge, the world of birds becomes more comprehensible and interesting, and watching and recognizing birds becomes even more enjoyable. Knowledge of bird families is also a very practical skill when watching birds abroad.

Vogelfamilies van Nederland describes the 62 families that encompass the Dutch bird fauna. Once you can name the family, recognizing the species becomes easier. Using family traits and unique species characteristics, this book will help the reader navigate the world of birds. This book follows the newest version 2021 IOC World Bird List for the classification and order of bird families. The texts reproduced here were previously published in modified form in Dutch magazines De Kieft and Vogeljaar.

Summary in Dutch:
Waarom is de staartmees geen familie van de koolmees? Als je de familie van een vogel kent, is het daarna makkelijker om de soort te benoemen. Vogelfamilies van Nederland leert je op een andere manier naar vogels kijken. Dit nieuwe vogelboek vormt een belangrijke aanvulling op bestaande vogelgidsen. Interessant voor beginnende en gevorderde vogelaars.

Vogels die tot dezelfde familie behoren, zoals bijvoorbeeld de futen, spechten of mezen, vertonen onderling veel overeenkomsten in uiterlijk en gedrag. Met die wetenschap wordt de vogelwereld een stuk inzichtelijker en interessanter en wordt vogels kijken en herkennen nog leuker. De familiekennis is ook heel praktisch als je vogels gaat kijken in het buitenland.

Vogelfamilies van Nederland beschrijft de Nederlandse vogelsoorten in 62 families. Als je de familie van een vogel kunt benoemen, is het daarna ook makkelijker om de soort te herkennen. Aan de hand van familiekenmerken en unieke soorteigenschappen maakt dit boek je wegwijs in de vogelwereld. Voor de indeling en volgorde van de families is de nieuwste versie van de I.O.C. World Bird List van 2021 aangehouden. Teksten verschenen eerder in aangepaste vorm in De Kieft en het Vogeljaar.
