Irish Birds describes and illustrates 160 of the most frequently occurring birds in Ireland. Specially designed for people with a general interest in birds, the species have been carefully selected to include those that the non-specialist birdwatcher is most likely to see. Birds are grouped together according to where they are most likely to be seen, and essential identification characteristics are given for each species, along with clear illustrations. There are notes on distribution, numbers and migration for each species, and a "places to visit" section details 74 of the best sites in Ireland for birdwatching.
