9780300072693: Skuas and Jaegers: A Guide to the Skuas and Jaegers of the World

Skuas (and jaegers) are a fascinating and popular group of seabirds that make up a subfamily of just seven species.
The individual plumage variation in some species is enormous, creating one of the most fascinating challenges in modern field identification. This is the first complete identification guide to the skuas of the world. It is designed to enable species identification and correct aging, and the information presented is based on years of study in the field, detailed examination of photographs and museum skins, and extensive research of the relevant literature.
The comprehensive text is accompanied by twelve exquisite color plates by Hans Larsson, illustrating a wide range of plumages. In addition, there are eight pages of color photographs and numerous black and white photographs and drawings that show key identification features. With this book, the seabird enthusiast should at last be able to identify almost every skua encountered, whether on shore or at sea.
