Europe's Birds: An Identification Guide

Europe's Birds: An Identification Guide

Rob Hume, Robert Still, Andy Swash & Hugh Harrop

Covering more than 900 species, and illustrated with over 3,800 photos, this is the most comprehensive, authoritative and ambitious single-volume photographic guide to Europe's birds ever produced. Detailed descriptions provide the information necessary to identify the birds of Europe in all their plumages - male, female, breeding, non-breeding, adult and immatures, as well as distinctive subspecies- yet the book is easy-to-use, practical and accessible. Birdwatchers of any ability will benefit from the clear text, details on range, status and habitat, and an unrivalled selection of photographs. Chosen to be as naturalistic and informative as possible, the images are also stunning to look at, making this a beautiful book to enjoy, as well as an up-to-date and essential source of identification knowledge.

The authors include top-class wildlife photographers, writers and editors, and an imaginative, highly skilled designer. All are experienced birders themselves, who know what is needed and what is useful in an id guide for birders living or travelling in Europe.
