Pigeons and Doves
David Gibbs, Eustace Barnes, John Cox
76 colour plates and distribution maps.
Pigeons and doves are widespread throughout the world. Some species feed mainly on fruit while others feed on seeds. Most are arboreal and the tropical species in particular are often brightly coloured. The family includes gregarious migratory species as well as shy, ground-dwelling forms such as the exotic crowned pigeons of New Guinea. This sumptuous new book illustrated with 76 coloured plates is the first to be dedicated to the field identification of pigeons and doves. It incorporates much recent information on the family.
