9780691089089: Pheasants, Partridges, and Grouse : A Guide to the Pheasants, Partridges, Quails, Grouse, Guineafowl, Buttonquails, and Sandgrouse of the World (Princeton Field Guides)

This guide brings together, for the first time within a single volume, a comprehensive review of all the world's pheasants, partridges, quails, grouse, turkeys, guineafowl, buttonquails, sandgrouse, and the enigmatic Plains-wanderer--over 250 species in all. The group includes some of the world's most familiar and beautiful birds, such as the Indian peafowl and the stunning tragopans, as well as some of the rarest and most threatened. This book concentrates on detailed identification and distribution, but also highlights conservation issues where relevant. The seventy-two color plates, by leading bird illustrators, show male, female, juvenile, and subspecies plumages, and form the finest set of illustrations of these birds to date. There is also a color distribution map for each species.



Pheasants, Partridges, and Grouse is a landmark volume in the literature of this attractive and vulnerable group of birds.

From the Back Cover:

"This long-awaited book seems destined to be the authoritative work for years to come on this large and diverse group, which runs the gamut from some of the most familiar to some of the least-known, most spectacular, and most threatened of the world's birds. The comprehensive text incorporates much information that is new, revised, or previously overlooked, and the plates are attractive and well planned, even including never-before-illustrated plumages."--Pamela C. Rasmussen, Division of Birds, Smithsonian Institution
