Beautifully illustrated with hundreds of colour photographs, and with up-to-date facts and figures on conservation, population and distribution, 100 Birds to See in Your Lifetime is the ultimate guide for avid birdwatchers and amateur enthusiasts alike. Find out why each beautiful bird has been included, whether for their impressive plumage, bizarre behaviour or if they need to be seen before they become too rare. Then mark each one off the included tick list as you discover everything you could want to know about these fantastic avian species, such as the critically endangered Gurney's Pitta, the more common Nightingale, or the exotic and unique Oilbird or Hoatzin. Painstakingly researched and passionately written, 100 Birds to See in Your Lifetime is the result of decades of expert research and observation from David Chandler and Dominic Couzens. Book jacket.
