FORTHCOMING, publication delayed, now due August 2013 (subject to change). Dazzling in their beauty, many of the 123 species of kingfisher, bee-eater and roller are very poorly known. This reference provides a review of the group showing every species, all the main races and most sex and age variations. Text and plates are closely co-ordinated with emphasis on behaviour, field characters and identification. Colour maps showing breeding and wintering ranges are also included.
