Covering the birds of Britain and northern Europe, this field guide allows readers not only to identify birds by their colour and other physical features, but also by the way in which they fly, feed and flock. Each family section begins with an overview of their habitat and distribution.
Covering the birds of Britain and northern Europe, this field guide allows readers not only to identify birds by their colour and other physical features, but also by the way in which they fly, feed and flock. Divided by bird families and featuring original, lively illustrations by Philip Snow and Tony Disley, the book is designed to illustrate birds as readers will actually see them in the field, enabling them to distinguish between different species by their size, shape, where they can be found and how they behave. Each family section begins with an overview of their habitat and distribution and then focuses on different aspects of bird behaviour, thereby allowing direct comparison between superficially similar birds.
