The Macmillan Birder's Guide to European and Middle Eastern Birds is designed to enable birdwatchers to distinguish between those rare birds that are often confused with a common species. This volume extends the range covered in Bird Identification (1989) to birds of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. There are 208 species illustrated in 90 plates.
The book has been arranged around 70 'confusion' groups, which have been given enough space and illustration to explore the subject in depth. Handwritten captions highlight points of similarity and difference while the text incorporates the latest identification techniques.
The comments on immature birds, sex differences, seasonal and race variations, calls, distribution, habitat and aberrant plumage and the extraordinary attention to detail will solve most of the identification problems faced by the enthusiastic birder.
