100 Birds to See in Your Lifetime

David Chandler & Dominic Couzens

Originally published in 2011, this book is part aspirational encyclopaedia, part identification guide. 100 Birds to See in Your Lifetime provides detailed summary information and range maps, along with beautifully written profiles featuring unusual facts, anecdotes and its significance. Whilst many of the species would be on any bird enthusiast's wish list, the list has been fiercely debated by two renowned birding authors, using various criteria to arrive at a top 100A must-have book for anyone interested in birds, with entries on 100 of the most incredible avian species across the world, illustrated with stunning photos of each. Entries describe the natural history and significance of the featured species, with summary information including size (and wingspan, where applicable); distribution; habitat; classification; population & conservation status; and the reason for inclusion. Some species are endangered and therefore a must to see and conserve; others are quite common but have a particular plumage or behaviour that makes them exceptional; and others have a legendary status amongst birdwatchers and the layman, such as dancing Red-crowned Cranes and the spectacular Gyr Falcon.

"In fact you should buy two copies, one for the book shelf and the other for next to your favourite chair so you can tick the Ticklist and plan the next few birding trips to increase your score."
