9780300135565: A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Japan and North-East Asia

Encompassing a spectacular variety of environments—from boreal areas to subtropical islands, from dense woodlands to open seas—Japan is home to a rich array of bird species. This up-to-date and brilliantly photographed guide covers nearly 600 species of birds found in Japan and north-east Asia, including resident and migrant species as well as vagrants that are seen with some regularity. Any visitor with an interest in locating, identifying, or photographing birds will find this book an indispensable companion when traveling in the region.
 Succinct entries for each species describe important identification features, various plumages, how to distinguish similar species, and where, when, and how frequently to expect sightings. Each entry includes one or more superb photographs and a user-friendly range map.
 Featured in this guide:
· Key facts for identifying nearly 600 bird species found in Japan, Korea, north-east China, and the Russian far east
· Over 1500 superb color photographs of wild birds
· Information on a wide range of avian habitats, including alpine areas, coastal waters, tidal flats, mixed and evergreen forests, wetlands, cultivated fields, and urban areas
