‘Birds’ communicates the secret lives and astonishing beauty of all the species in Britain and Europe. Featuring over 450 species of bird that can be found regularly within Europe, this complete photographic guide provides a comprehensive and authoritative text along with some of the best bird photography in the world. The characteristic appearance and behaviour of every species is clearly identified, and there is at-a-glance information on food, song, habitat, migration, breeding and behaviour / Each species is illustrated with a sumptuous colour photograph and artworks to show different plumages / Maps accompany each species to show distribution and breeding ranges Memorable descriptions and often astonishing facts make even our commonest birds worthy of new attention. Organised taxonomically, entries vary in length from longer articles about the more iconic species, to shorter descriptions for similar species within a family. Beautifully illustrated with over 500 colour photos and 1000 illustrations, Birds makes an ideal gift for bird-lovers and complete beginners alike.
