You learn to distinguish 30 key species and from there are taken to similar birds, taught exactly how you can spot the more subtle differences between species and to identify them accurately.
Each entry includes:
• Numerous, specially-commissioned illustrations to show their behaviour and plumages
• Scientific factfile to double-up as a useful reference
• Distribution map and advice to suggest where you are most likely to find that species
• Detailed, accurate illustrations show birds as you will see them in the wild
