Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0691010838, Hardcover)The chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, and treecreepers include some of the best-known birds in the world. They also number among them some species so rare that they have been seen by only a handful of birdwatchers. This is the first guide to cover all of these families across the globe. The comprehensive text provides extensive information about each species, including identification, description, vocalizations, geographical distribution and variation, habits, habitats, breeding biology, and relationships. Beautifully drawn full-color plates detail all of the species, and the book includes over 100 color maps and additional line drawings. This is the only guide of its kind. It covers the many members of these popular bird families, which count among them chickadees, titmice, penduline tits, Verdin, Bushtit, long-tailed tits, nuthatches, treecreepers and Wallcreeper. With its worldwide coverage, the book reaches far beyond Europe and North America to encompass the many exciting species to be found in Africa and Asia. Its illustrations are similarly unique and extensive. The author is a well- known writer who is on the editorial board of Birding World magazine and a regular contributor to Bird Watching. The illustrator is an award-winning artist who has been named "Bird Illustrator of the Year" by British Birds magazine. Here is an authoritative guidebook that will appeal to both casual birders and professional ornithologists alike. It is a wonderful resource for anyone who has a birdfeeder and for everyone with an interest in birds.
