Riassunto: Each pocket-size volume in the "Eyewitness Handbooks" series contains over 500 specially commissioned photographs. A quick reference identification key introduces the reader to the subject and guides him through the book. In addition, the introductory section of each volume informs enthusiasts of all ages how to take their interest one stage further.
From Library Journal:
This attractive book features quality photos of bird eggs, with an average of four examples for each species. There are short introductory sections on eggs and their biology, nests, breeding, and bird families. Accompanying the photos are species accounts with brief descriptions of eggs, breeding, range, egg and clutch size, and which sexes incubate and for how long, plus small paintings of each species shown with its egg-though the egg appears too large. As a sampling, this book is a fine effort, but because there are about 9,672 species worldwide, it fails as a true guide. Even considering that Walters touches on one out of 19 species, his treatment is still hit or miss. Of the world's woodpeckers, only one out of 215 is shown, yet four out of seven of the large ratites are covered. most readers will find more information in regional guides such as Hal H. Harrison's A Field Guide to Western Birds' Nests (Houghton, 1988) and A Field Guide to Eastern Birds' Nests (Houghton, 1975). A marginal purchase.
