Handbook of Western Palearctic Birds: Passerines

Handbook of Western Palearctic Birds: Passerines

Hadoram Shirihai & Lars Svensson

This unique and spectacular handbook is the most complete and comprehensive photographic guide to the passerines of the Western Palearctic. Written by two of the world's most respected ornithologists, Hadoram Shirihai and Lars Svensson, it contains the most up-to-date information available on bird identification covering all aspects of plumage, moult, ageing and sexing, with sections on voice and other identification criteria, and detailed taxonomic notes.

The passerines are divided into two volumes, with the first covering larks, hirundines, pipits and wagtails, bulbuls, accentors, robins, chats, wheatears, thrushes, prinias and cisticolas, and warblers, and the second volume covering flycatchers, reedlings, tits, nuthatches, orioles and sunbirds, shrikes, corvids, finches and buntings, along with extreme vagrants.

The exceptional text is backed up by a stunning collection of more than 5,000 photos, featuring a comprehensive range of plumages that illustrate every race and morph of each species in the region. Over 400 colour distribution maps.

This stunning handbook will be the definitive reference for the region for years to come - no birder's shelf will be complete without it.

Please note - There is a surcharge of £15 for delivery to Highlands and Islands as this is a heavy set of books. 1200 pages.
