A Guide to the warblers of the Western Palaearctic

£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

"This book is a cross between a field guide and a reference book on the warblers (and kinglets) of Europe and the Mediterranean countries of Africa and the Middle East. The 23 color plates act as a field guide with brief identification notes adjacent to each plate. The first half of the book offers the reference material of 1-2 pages for each bird. All the breeding, migrant, and vagrant species are covered, including the Cape Verde Cane Warbler isolated in the Cape Verde Islands.

Each plate displays 3-5 species with 6-11 different illustrations. These illustrations are top quality with detail, color, and form. Difference between genders and subspecies are shown nicely. One quirk of these plates is some species are displayed on two, three, or four different plates (e.g., Chiffchaff is on plates 17, 19, 21, and 22). This is both appreciated and somewhat awkward. It's good to see the strategic placement of look-alike species next to each other throughout the plates; however, it does make it a little difficult to view all plumages of the bird at once."

Book in very good condition with clean pages throughout and securely bound. Printed in 1991.
