Now birders at all levels can learn how to identify shorebirds quickly and simply. This guide includes more than 870 stunning color photographs, starting with a general impression of the species and progressing to more detailed images of the bird throughout its life cycle. Quiz questions in the captions will engage and challenge all birders and help them benefit from this simplified, commonsense approach to identification.

Review:

'A well-designed guide by knowledgeable and talented field birders and photographers that will benefit both beginner and advanced birders alike.' Birdwatch "the strength of this jizz- based book is its reliance on well over 800 excellent images of mainly Neartric Shore birds." Birdwatch
