About this title

Synopsis:

Pigeons and doves are a large family of birds occurring throughout the world. This book -- the first to be dedicated to the field identification of these birds and to be fully illustrated in color -- incorporates much recent information about them.Many species of pigeons and doves are specialist frugivores, say the authors, while others feed on seeds. Most are arboreal, and the tropical species in particular are often brightly colored. The family includes gregarious migratory species as well as shy, ground-dwelling forms such as the exotic crowned pigeons of New Guinea. The comprehensive text is accompanied by 76 exquisite color plates that capture the essence of these varied birds and illustrate all species and subspecies.

About the Author:

Eustace Barnes is a wildlife artist and tour leader specializing in South America where he has travelled extensively. John Cox is one of Britain's foremost bird artists. His work has been included in a number of books; this is his first major book.
