It now incorporates the latest information and observations on bird life. Combining scientific exactitude with clarity of explanation, this lavishly illustrated fully revised edition takes advantage of recent advances in photography and contains a spectacular array of more than three hundred illustrations, nearly one third of them in color: photographs by internationally known artists, such as Eric Hosking; and vivid drawings by the author himself.
