An easy-to-use, fully-illustrated guide to the birds of Ireland
Irish Birds describes and illustrates 160 of the most frequently occurring birds in Ireland. Specially designed for people with a general interest in birds, the species have been carefully selected to include those that the non-specialist birdwatcher is most likely to see.
Birds are grouped together according to where they are most likely to be seen: in gardens, parks and buildings; farmland and hedgerows; woodland and scrubland; moorland and upland; freshwater or coastal areas. In addition:
· Sections start with background information about each of the major habitats
· Essential identification characteristics are given for each species, along with clear illustrations
· There are notes on distribution, numbers and migration for each species
· General pages for thrushes, tits, sparrows, finches etc help you to distinguish similar species
Finally, a 'places to visit' section details 74 of the best sites in Ireland for birdwatching, including when to visit, how to get there, and what you will see. Irish Birds is perfect for travelling in Ireland, is an ideal introduction to birdwatching, and makes the perfect gift for all nature lovers.
