Publisher Comments:

Covering every bird family on Earth, this definitive, easy-to-use volume is designed to inspire and inform both novice birders and experts who want an authoritative yet concise reference. Its a fascinating colorful guide to all the birds on our planet, their identification, structures and plumages, habitats, behaviors, and ranges.

The clear, accessible text provides a systematic presentation of information organized taxonomically by family based on the latest official guidelines, with detailed and accurate descriptions for each, worldwide distribution maps for every family, and carefully selected profiles of 500 representative species. The books illustrations include both spectacular and informative color photography by the worlds leading wildlife photographers as well as the superb artwork birders have come to expect from National Geographic. Illustrated sidebars complement the family accounts, exploring everything from the courtship dance of the Birds of Paradise to the Harpy Eagles predatory tactics. The text is wrapped up by a useful glossary and a detailed index that puts an astonishing range of information at the readers fingertips.
