Excellent, high quality book full of illustrations and valuable information
on 20 January 2016
I purchased this following a recommendation from a photographer based in Vancouver as we're going on holiday to that area in a few months. The images are plentiful though there are no photographs in the book, however I often feel it is difficult to identify birds from photographs, so I prefer this.
The male/female plumage differences are shown and the descriptions are comprehensive, including the size and weight of the adult birds as well as their birdsong, usual location and preferred habitat.
It is a very handy size to pop in the rucksack and as I wasn't sure what it meant when I purchased it, the flexibound option it mentions in the buying options means that it has a rounded spine and when you open it, it will lie flat without breaking the spine.
