This is the essential companion for the keen travelling birdwatcher. This book covers all perching birds of the Palearctic, a zoogeographical area running from the British Isles eastwards to Japan, with its southern border marked by the Sahara, the Middle Eastern deserts, and the Himalayas. It covers the whole of the Russian Arctic, China, Tibet, Japan and the whole of Europe. Every passerine species found in this wide area is illustrated, 1,800 species, in all plumages. The accompanying text concentrates on field identification, including voice, and includes a distribution map for each species. For the companion volume on non-passerines see [stock id 26113].
