Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RSPB What's that Bird? (Paperback)
When I read the description for this book I was hooked. Its the thing I have been looking for.
WHAT A PITY ITS RUBBISH.
eg looking for a small brownish bird with red on on its head??
Now I know its probably Linnet or Redpoll
They have Linnet under "streaked brown birds" and they are not that streaky
They have Redpoll under "finches and flycathers" 16 pages apart.
I fact there are only 4 birds in the "streked brown bird" section.
What about Dunnock, house sparrow, tree sparrow, sedge warbler, grasshopper warbler.
If I tried I,m sure I could find another 10.
Birds of prey, I don't know about you but the only ones I see are on the wing.
There are no pictures of birds on the wing except 1, a swift.
Also there it seems to show only male birds of any species.
Only 150 bird types.
Waders, for some reason they decieded to put in a very rare black winged stint, you will NOT find a fairly common Ruff or an Avocet.
Save your money.
Buy something else.
Please note I am not normally a reviewer of products. But this is so bad I felt compelled to try to save other people the expense and hastle.
