Each of the more than 200 bird descriptions contains fascinating information about the bird's appearance, habits, and environment, and is accompanied by a beautiful and accurate colour photograph. It also contains maps, diagrams of bird parts, common and scientific names, a list of bird families covered, a glossary of terms, hints on where to look for birds, and a detailed bird checklist.
