Shrikes of the world
Norbert Lefranc, illustrated by Tim Worfolk
Helm, London: 2022.
Octavo, colour photographs, distribution maps, dustwrapper.
Beautiful, colourful, often fearless hunters of large insects and small vertebrates, shrikes are among the most admired of all avian groups. The group is widespread (particularly in the Old World) with a large number of species, though many populations have plummeted in recent years, especially in Europe.
This stunning book represents the definitive account of shrikes and their relationships, appearance, conservation and lifestyle; it will be treasured by birdwatchers and professional ornithologists alike.
