Flight Identification of European Passerines and Select Landbirds

Flight Identification of European Passerines and Select Landbirds

Author & illustrator: Tomasz Cofta; photographer: Michal Skakuj.

Opening up new frontiers in birding, this is the first field guide for identifying European passerines in flight, featuring more than 1,850 stunning colour illustrations from acclaimed bird artist Tomasz Cofta, who creates remarkably lifelike images using the latest digital technology. With detailed coverage of 206 passerines and 32 near-passerine landbirds, this cutting-edge book features a seamlessly integrated approach. It combines Cofta's precise illustrations, which depict key shape and colouration features, with a range of photos for each species that show how they appear in flight. The species accounts are short, sharp, and authoritative, and essential information on individual flight manner and flock structure and behaviour are represented concisely. In addition, flight calls are transliterated, briefly described, shown as sonograms, and backed up with a unique collection of more than a hundred online audio recordings, that can accessed by QR code. While Flight Identification of European Passerines and Select Landbirds is written in a style that will appeal to all birders, it also contains new knowledge on flight identification, making it a must-have for professional ornithologists and scientists as well.

This is a larger book than Britain's Birds at 15.6 x 23.5 cm
