This text, complemented by true-to-life illustrations, aims to aid rapid recognition of plumage and distinguishing features, while providing full details of behaviour, flight characteristics, calls and songs, habitats and distribution. Accompanying maps show where each bird is most likely to be encountered. An introductory section describes the families into which the species are grouped and provides practical information on birdwatching and good fieldcraft.
