Publisher Comments:

Shorebirds of North America, Europe, and Asia is a quick-reference field guide to the sandpipers, plovers, stints, and other shorebirds found on these continents. The exhaustive and superbly detailed color plates show the birds at rest and in flight, and in every plumage variant likely to be encountered. Species are treated plumage by plumage alongside images of similar species they are otherwise likely to be confused with. Succinct text on pages facing the plates summarizes the key identification features of appearance, voice, and behavior. There is a color distribution map for each of the described species. This guide provides fast, easy, and reliable field identification of this challenging group of birds.

  • 80 color plates show full range of plumage types of all species covered
  • Concise facing text treats appearance, voice, and behavior
  • Clear color distribution map for each species
  • Definitive pictorial guide to the shorebirds of these continents
