9780713643329: Albatrosses, Petrels and Shearwaters of the World
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Famous for their size and elegance in flight, albatrosses are familiar to anyone who has travelled through the southern oceans, and are a flagship family of conservation concern. However, albatrosses are just one of several groups of 'pelagic' birds - those that visit land only to breed, and spend the rest of their lives far from the coast, soaring from ocean to ocean in a never-ending search for food. Mysterious and graceful, these birds can present a formidable identification challenge to even the most experienced birder. This book provides the answer - the first comprehensive guide to pelagic birds, the albatrosses, petrels, shearwaters, storm-petrels and diving petrels. A total of 46 spectacular colour plates highlight key ID criteria of the birds in flight, with close-ups of diagnostic regions of the plumage. The plates are accompanied by accurate distribution maps, while the sparkling text brings the world of these amazing birds to life. Several extremely rare species, such as Beck's Petrel, are illustrated for the first time, while the New Zealand Storm-petrel, rediscovered as recently as 2004, is also included. Sea-watchers all around the world will find this superb field guide indispensable.

Revue de presse :

A well-crafted and useful field guide that pays fine tribute to a really fabulous group of birds.'', --Birdwatch (June 2007)

''An excellent addition to the field guide series.'', --BTO News (May-June 2007)

'Whether you are a travelling birder seeking new ticks around the globe or a local birdwatcher keen to get to grips with the occasional petrel or shearwater seen offshore in British waters... this great value book comes highly recommended.'', Morecambe Visitor (July 2007) ''This book is an absolute ""must buy"" for seabirders.'', British Birds (August 2007) ''Books as well researched and as well illustrated as this will certainly encourage and promote a greater interest in these wonderful birds.'', --Avicultural Magazine (no.3 2007)
