Must have for the serious birder., 29 May 2014
This is a super little book which would have been better in a bigger format as the plates are rather congested and the pictures of the individual species a bit small.
Having said that, I have few other criticisms. The text is highly informative and in considerable detail and will be helpful to birders at all levels. Some of the species choice is a bit odd. Do we really need to have House and Tree Sparrow in there?
However, this is a must have especially for the serious birder and will be a welcome addition anyone's ornithological library.
