A brand new, entry level photographic introduction to birds and bird watching, featuring 150 of the commoner bird species most likely to be seen in the fields and gardens of Britain and Northern Europe. The user-friendly introduction covers geography, climate, taxonomy and nomenclature, habitats, bird identification, and the best places to watch birds. Common birds are then identified using six descriptive groups: seabirds, waders, birds of prey, game birds, woodpeckers and other exotic-looking birds and passerine (perching) birds.
