This book contains a comprehensive treatise on the eggs and nests of birds commonly found in the British Isles, designed as a companion to the 'Pocket Guide to British Birds'. It is written with the intention of enabling people to identify any nest with eggs or young that they may find in their garden, in open country, or by the seaside. A great book for anyone with an interest in the subject, this antique text makes for a wonderful addition to any collection of ornithological literature. The chapters contained herein include: 'How to Find the Nest You Want', 'Making Notes', 'Bird Ringing', 'The Birds in the Book', 'How to Use the Book', 'Land Birds', 'Very Short', 'Short', 'Medium Short', 'Medium', 'Medium Long', 'Long', 'Very Long', 'Waterside Birds', et cetera. We are proud to republish this text here complete with a new introduction on ornithology.
