Product description

Review

"The richest and the most comprehensive of the current guides."--Times (London)

"One of the world's greatest bird field guides, first published in 1999, has been expanded and fully revised. It includes new species names, field marks, illustrations, and range maps. Remaining unchanged is its sense of purpose--to present clear identification information for each of Europe's birds."--Birder's World

"If you are birding in Europe, you must have this guide. It should be on the shelf of many North American bird watchers, especially those who live along the Atlantic coast, where many European birds are found. It should also be in the library of anyone who collects field guides, if for no reason other than you can occasionally take it down and be reminded of what is possible when art and design and purpose are treated as equal parts of a final product."--Bird Watcher's Digest

"The best field guide to the birds of Europe and one of the best field guides worldwide!"--Ian Paulsen, Birdbooker Report

"The guide has extensive information (plumage for juveniles, adult males and females, and seasonal variations) on 772 species of European birds. . . . Birds of Europe is a hefty tome--1 and 3/4 lbs.--but choosing between it and, say, an extra pair of shoes when you pack is a nobrainer. Take the field guide; lose the shoes."--Fannie Peczenik, Pittsburgh Bird Watching Examiner

"Birds of Europe has some of the best illustrations I have seen in any field guide. . . . The identification notes are often quite detailed, especially for difficult species. . . . Birds of Europe: Second Edition is the best field guide I have yet seen and surpasses even David Sibley's excellent work. . . . If you are birding in Europe, if you want to seek out European vagrants in North America, or if you just want to look at better illustrations of Europe's avifauna, this is the guide to get."--John Beetham, DC Birding Blog

"I give this guide a 4.5 out of 5 rating because of the quality of the information and presentation. I would wholeheartedly recommend picking up a copy of Birds of Europe."--Jeff Jones, Birdoculars

"This excellent new edition meets all of my criteria for usefulness: highly-readable text, excellent layout, fine maps and beautiful, accurate illustrations that help the reader come to grips with the fine points of identification. . . . Highly recommended!"--William P. Mueller, Bluebird's Laugh

"Given the wealth of descriptive identification cues in the text, and the truly wonderful illustruations, Birds of Europe is truly a first-rate field guide."--Terry Sohl, Bird's Eye View

"The update is worth the wait and a great revision from the first edition. The amount of knowledge about birds of Europe has increased greatly and there have been drastic changes in taxonomy as well. . . . With over 3,500 color illustrations and a vault of information on a vast geographic area, Birds of Europe is a perfect addition to your birding library and a great upgrade from the first edition."--Birdfreak.com
