About this book

Language: Dutch

This is the first guide specifically for field ornithologists devoted to moulting – the periodic renewal of feathers – and its usefulness to identify birds in nature.

First, the book describes the different types of feathers, their formation, their role and the way they are arranged to constitute the plumage of birds, by specifying the nomenclature associated with it. The phenomenon of moulting is then explained in a didactic and illustrated manner, and answers are given to the major questions commonly asked by birdwatchers. What is the change for? What is a partial moult? A complete moult? A suspended moult? How does moult take place? Which feathers are affected and in what order are they renewed? According to which calendar? Finally, and for the first time, this guide presents the reader with concrete examples of cases where we have a good knowledge of the moulting strategies, to help with recognizing the different plumages of a species, to evaluate the age of the observed individuals, and even, in some cases, differentiate closely related species.

- The first guide of its kind, intended for field ornithologists
- More than 260 photos and about thirty illustrations
- 31 moulting charts presented in an innovative way

Summary in Dutch:
Altijd al willen weten wat slagpennen of handpennen zijn? Of, waar zitten nou eigenlijk de tertials? En hoe gaat de rui bij een vogel nu eigenlijk? Dit is de eerste gids die speciaal gewijd is aan het verenkleed van vogels en de rui.

Welk soort veren heeft een vogel, hoe worden ze gevormd en wat is hun functie? De rui wordt uitgebreid uitgelegd en geïllustreerd met foto’s en tekeningen. Vragen zoals ‘waarom ruien vogels?’ en ‘in welke volgorde worden de veren vervangen?’ worden beantwoord.

Vogels en hun veren geeft je uitgebreide informatie over het verenkleed en ruipatronen. Daarmee is het mogelijk om de soort en leeftijd van veel vogels te bepalen en dikwijls ook om welke ondersoort het gaat.

- door gerenommeerde specialisten geschreven
- meer dan 260 foto’s en illustraties
- 31 diagrammen over ruipatronen per soortgroep
