This authoritative field guide deals exclusively with the birds of the Middle East. Over 700 species are described, with distribution maps and full details of plumage and voice. It is indispensable for the visiting birder, and a vital tool for anyone interested in the avifauna of the region.
This is the first comprehensive field guide dealing exclusively with the birds of this region. It covers all the species, including vagrants, found in the Arabian peninsula (including Socotra), Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Iraq, Iran, Turkey and Cyprus. Over 700 species are described in concise text with full details of pulmage and voice. Distribution maps appear opposite the plates and are annotated with each species' status and preferred habitat. This authoritative book will not only be an indispensable guide to the visiting birder, but also a vital tool for those engaged in work to conserve and study the avifauna of this region, which is of such importance to both the indigenous species and those which pass through on migration.
The authors have extensive ornithological experience in the Middle East spanning over 30 years of research into identification, biology and conservation.
