Covering the birds of Britain and northern Europe, this is the only field guide that allows you not only to identify birds by their colour and other physical features, but also by the way in which they fly, feed and flock.
Divided by bird families and featuring original, lively illustrations that show you birds as you will actually see them in the field. Birds by Behaviour is designed to help you distinguish between different species by their size, shape, where they can be found and how they behave.
Each family section begins with an overview of their habitat and distribution and then focuses on different aspects of bird behaviour, thereby allowing direct comparison between superficially similar birds.
This is the essential guide for everyone who wants to identify birds in the field.
