The habitats of Great Britain, Europe and Africa boast some of the most interesting and adaptable members of the avian world. This accessible and fully illustrated guide presents some of the rare and familiar species of these lands. From the tiny malachite sunbird to the enormous ostrich; from the grace of a mute swan to the striking casque of an African crowned hornbill - each has the power to enthrall.An expert, accessible introduction explains how birds evolved, bird behaviour, practical tips on fieldcraft, and the different habitats in which birds can be found. A directory of over 560 species features intricate colour artworks, and details everything from variable plumage to bill shapes, distribution, size, food, eggs and nests. The birds are grouped by habitat and type - including oceanic, estuarine, freshwater, woodland, open country and urban species. With over 535 individual colour illustrations and photographs, this comprehensive visual encyclopedia is a classic reference for all bird enthusiasts.
