The third revised edition is finally here! The Bird Guide is considered one of the best in its field globally, with its detailed descriptions of around 1,000 species in Europe, North Africa and parts of the Middle East. It is the indisputable companion for birdwatching and an unbeatable encyclopedia for those who prefer to stay at home. A must for bird enthusiasts at all levels, as indispensable as binoculars.
The new revised edition contains 32 extra pages and many parts have been redesigned, with new illustrations and updated or completely new texts. The educational texts outline the size, choice of habitat, characteristics, variations and sound of each species. Symbols indicate how common or rare the species are, and clear maps show distribution during breeding, migration, and wintering.
This edition contains over 4,000 beautiful illustrations to present a wide array of species in their varying guises due to gender, age, season, and distribution. Arrows and captions highlight important features, and the many pictures show birds in their typical environments.
Authors Killian Mullarney, Lars Svensson and Dan Zetterström are all well-travelled and globally renowned ornithologists. This book is the result of close collaboration over the years, ever since it was first published in 1999. The previous editions have been published in over 20 countries and sold more than 1.2 million copies worldwide.
