Birds & Birdwatching

Most popular at the top

  • The Skuasby Robert W. Furness

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Many birdwatchers may never have seen a skua; those who have will most probably have vivid memories of one or other species flying powerfully past a headland, or twisting and diving in pursuit of its piratical intentions towards a food-laden seabird - or, perhaps more memorably still, of themselves taking evasive action from the power-diving irate... more...

  • The Ruffby Johan G. Van Rhijn

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The Ruff is a fascinating species whose elaborate breeding behaviour has captivated ornithologists for decades. Their communal display grounds, or leks, provide an extreme example of a social system widespread in birds and other animals, in which brilliantly plumaged males seemingly compete for the attention of passing females. In this book, Johan... more...

  • The Dippersby Stephanie Tyler

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Dippers are the world's only truly aquatic passerine birds and for the birdwatcher and naturalist the Dipper's remarkable swimming and diving abilities are only added to by the beauty of their preferred but threatened habitat, the fast flowing streams of the wild uplands. Territorial behaviour, breeding biology, diet, movements and population ... more...

  • The Peregrine Falconby Derek Ratcliffe; Chris Rose

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The first edition of The Peregrine Falcon was widely recognised as a classic of its kind, documenting not only the species' biology but also the sad tale of its decline due to the impact of pesticides. This extensively revised and enlarged second edition takes full account of important new developments in the story of this bird during the intervening... more...

  • The Bee-Eatersby C. Hilary Fry

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Dr Hilary Fry's study of the bee-eaters covers all 24 species of this colourful Family, which ranges from southern Europe, Africa and the Middle East to India, China, south-east Asia and Australia. A major part of the book comprises the species accounts, with complementary colour plates of 42 species and sub-species and detailed maps depicting the... more...

  • In Search of Arctic Birdsby Richard Vaughan

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Arctic birds have long held a fascination for Richard Vaughan, whose trips to the region, watching and photographing birds, have provided the raw material for a number of previous publications. Here, he focuses on the historical aspects of Arctic ornithology, bringing to life not only the birds but the activities of those who have lived with them,... more...

  • The Pinyon Jayby John M. Marzluff; Russel P. Balda

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    A flock of Pinyon Jays arrive in a flash of blue, and leave again just as suddenly. This once mysterious bird is now the subject of over 20 years of intensive research involving over one thousand colour-marked jays by Russell Balda, John Marzluff and their colleagues and helpers. This plain blue bird has turned out to be anything but plain in its biology... more...

  • Birds of the Strait of Gibraltarby Clive Finlayson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The Strait of Gibraltar is famous as a major point of passage for Palaearctic birds migrating between their European breeding grounds and their winter quarters in Africa. Clive Finlayson, a native of the Rock and a trained ornithologist, presents a fascinating account of the region and its resident and transitory bird life. The first chapter of... more...

  • Seventy Years of Birdwatchingby H.G Alexander

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Seventy Years of Birdwatching is not truly an autobiography, there is too little about the author in it, though the personality of this exceptional, shy and gentle man comes through. This is a book about birdwatching, birdwatchers and, above all, birds. It is, in some measure, also a history of the development of modern ornithology in Britain... more...

  • Birds in Irelandby Clive Hutchinson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Birdwatching has become an increasingly popular pastime in Ireland as elsewhere. Nor is all of the birdwatching done by the Irish. Many professional ornithologists from Britain and Western Europe find good reason to study Ireland's birds, as do the numerous birdwatching visitors each year. Clive Hutchinson, a leading Irish ornithologist, has compiled... more...
