The best-selling Collins bird identification guide has a brand-new look.
Covering all the birds found from the North Pole to the Sahara Desert, and from the Ural Mountains to the Atlantic islands, the species are arranged in families. The colour illustrations show how the species differ in terms of their age and sex, and also how their appearance varies across the range.
The text for each bird includes the points most helpful for identification: general appearance and behaviour, colour and markings, how it flies or walks, songs and calls, size in centimetres, and habitat.
The maps next to each description show where the bird is found: green for all the year round, yellow for summer distribution and blue for winter. The main migration patterns are also shown.
