An introductory guide to 180 species of bird commonly found throughout Scotland in the best-selling pocketable Gem format.

Unlike many field guides, Gem Scottish Birds does not cover birds which only visit occasionally, or which occur in such small numbers and are so difficult to identify that only experienced birdwatchers can spot them. Instead, it concentrates on the commoner species that the amateur birdwatcher is most likely to see, plus a few scarcer ones of particular interest.

The entries are grouped taxonomically, with a detailed introduction to all the different habitats. There are also details of key identification features and behavioural characteristics which will help you identify each bird with accuracy and ease.

Each entry includes:

* Full-colour illustration
* Common name and Latin and Gaelic name
* The season in which the bird is likely to be spotted
* Details on habitat, feeding habits and voice

There is also a section with up-to-date details about places of interest and the best sites to go for birdwatching, with maps and contact information to help you get there.

Packed full of information, Gem Scottish Birds is the ideal guide for both visitors and residents of Scotland who wish to learn about the fascinating wealth of birds that can be found there.
