These problems are sometimes complicated by the fact that not all warblers are brown and small; some are brightly colored and relatively large. Jeff Baker helps novices and experts alike to steer away from such confusion in a unique book covering all old world warblers in Europe and Asia. The book describes in detail 145 species, including all aspects of identification and those species that are likely to be confused with one another. Sections on geographical variation, moult, voice, habitat and behavior, distribution, and measurements complete the guide, together with forty- eight color plates and numerous line drawings presenting every species and 140 color distribution maps showing breeding and wintering ranges.Very few books have covered Asia in such detail, and none until now has brought together all the warblers of Europe and Asia in one place. Groups and species such as prinias and tailor birds are described extensively as never before. Warblers of Europe and Asia also presents warblers new to science and brings us up to date on the latest thinking on taxonomic treatmentRead Less

Octavo, dustwrapper, 360 pp., 48 colour plates, 145 maps. Many warblers are notoriously difficult to identify in the field (and even in the hand) and, until now, there has been no definitive guide to the species of these regions. One hundred and forty-five species (and all their races) are described in detail, covering all aspects of identification. As with other books in the Helm Identification Guides series, the treatment is exhaustive, with text including sections on moult, voice, habitat and behaviour, distribution and measurements. All species (and many races) are illustrated within the 48 colour plates, and there is also a colour distribution map for each species, with a wealth of line drawings complementing the text.
