Tracks and Signs of the Birds of Britain and Europe - David Lees,John Ferguson,Michael Lawrence,Roy Brown

Tracks and Signs of the Birds of Britain and Europe is a unique companion guide for the field naturalist, and for anyone who wants to know the origins of feathers or bird bones they might find, to unravel what species might have made a trackway in the mud or snow, who made that nest, or to discover what species left behind those prey remains. The culmination of a lifetime of research and experience by four leading ornithologists skilled in fieldcraft, this fully revised and updated third edition contains a wealth of fascinating new material, illustrated by artwork and photography throughout. Subjects covered include tracks and trails, feeding and behavioural signs, nests, pellets, droppings, feathers and skulls, while sections on habitat types and field-analysis methods have also been updated for this edition. All European bird families are covered, with numerous individual species being described in detail. Tracks and Signs of the Birds of Britain and Europe is an indispensable companion for all feather-finders and track-watchers, and a fine addition to the Bloomsbury Naturalist series.
