9780691088525: Thrushes

This is the first book in nearly one hundred years that is solely devoted to thrushes, one of the most widespread and well-known families of birds in the world. It treats comprehensively the world's 162 species of true thrushes and covers some of the best-known garden species as well as some of the rarest and most elusive of all birds. It also includes some of the most musically accomplished singers of any bird family. The book contains a wealth of detailed information on identification and distribution, with a full description of each species, including reference to all recognized races. Emphasis is given to vocalizations-often the key to identifying thrush species. Habitat and range for all species, together with information on movements and breeding behavior, are also covered.


For the first time, all species in the family of Turdidae thrushes are described and illustrated in full color. These superb illustrations are complemented by line drawings depicting particular aspects of shape or plumage. The 60 color plates comprise approximately 540 images, covering all but one, long-extinct species. The depictions differentiate adults, immatures, and most of the distinctive races. The plates are accompanied by color maps showing the breeding and wintering range for each species.


The detailed and accurate text and spectacular color illustrations will make this book indispensable to all ornithologists and birders. This will be, undoubtedly, the standard work on thrushes for many years to come.


Features include:



  • Comprehensive identification guide to all 162 species of true thrush throughout the world

  • Detailed text covering identification, description, geographical variation, voice, status and distribution, movements, habitat, behavior, and measurements

  • 60 color plates depicting every species, including most differences in age, sex, and geographical variation

  • Color maps showing breeding and wintering ranges

  • Numerous line drawings depicting shape, plumage, and behavior

From the Back Cover:

"This is a significant contribution to the fields of birding and ornithology. Mainly, this book will serve as the first thorough summary of this avian group. It also illustrates all species within one volume, something that has not been done before. No other recent book has such extensive and detailed description of the plumages, moults, and general appearance of the thrushes."--Alvaro Jaramillo, author of New World Blackbirds
