About this book

Language: Dutch

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.

Summary in Dutch:
Zeldzame Vogels van Europa is een omvangrijke fotogids met 2000 foto’s van 460 (zeer) zeldzame vogelsoorten van Europa en een groot deel van de Western Palearctic. Per soort biedt deze gids een heldere beschrijving met diagnostische kenmerken van het verenkleed, aangevuld met informatie over gedrag, roep en habitat.

De talrijke foto’s laten per soort de verschillende kleden en ook ondersoorten zien. De kaarten geven inzicht in de verspreiding tijdens het broedseizoen en in de winter. Dit is een onmisbare gids voor iedere vogelaar.
