Birds & Birdwatching

Most popular at the top

  • Man and Wildfowlby Janet Kear

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The involvement of humans with ducks, geese and swans has probably been closer than with any other group of birds, today and for several millenia past. This involvement, in its many aspects, is the theme of this compelling and readable account by an Assistant Director of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. Dr Kear ranges widely, from a summary of... more...

  • The Natural History of Cape Clear Islandby J.T.R. Sharrock; Robert Gillmor

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    Cape Clear Island, the most southerly point of Ireland apart from the nearby Fastnet Rock, has been the site of a bird observatory since 1959. This account of the island, its flora and fauna, its inhabitants and history, is weighted in favour of the birds but this is, perhaps, inevitable since the island offers so much of exceptional ornithological... more...

  • Birds and Forestryby Mark Avery; Roderick Leslie

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The conflict between forestry and nature conservation has, in recent years, become a major environmental issue. The planting of large tracts of land with exotic conifers and the resulting disturbance of existing plant and animal communities has polarized the debate, each camp believing that it holds the most rational view. This book tackles the issues,... more...

  • Birds by Nightby Graham Martin

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    For many people, watching and studying birds is exclusively a day time activity. However, for many birds twilight and night time are not a barrier to useful activity. It is true that very few birds are exclusively nocturnal, but many birds which are active by day also conduct limited, and often crucial, activities after dusk. This book examines many... more...

  • Red Data Birds in Britainby L.A Batten; C.J Bibby; P. Clement; G.D Elliott; R.F Porter

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    The various Red Data Books prepared by the IUCN and ICBP have set the standards for recognizing birds close to or at risk of extinction worldwide. This book, by focusing on vulnerable species living in or visiting Britain, sets out to define the British situation and to clearly establish both the importance of British populations and our own responsibilities... more...

  • The Magpies: The Ecology and Behaviour of Black-Billed and Yellow-Billed Magpiesby Tim Birkhead

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Magpies are unmistakeable in their appearance, voice and extrovert, arrogant manner. While their persecution at the hands of gamekeepers over the last hundred years has made them wary and difficult to approach, a number of recent field studies, both in Europe and North America, have successfully revealed the intricacies of the magpie way of life.... more...

  • The Pied Flycatcherby Arne Lundberg; Rauno V. Alatalo

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The Pied Flycatcher is one of Europe's best-studied species. The first detailed work on it was begun in the 1930s by German ornithologists, but it was Lars von Haartman's Finnish study that both established long-term research on the species and founded many of the central themes of modern ornithology. Soon after, in the late 1940s, Bruce Campbell... more...

  • In Search of Sparrowsby Denis Summers-Smith

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Denis Summers-Smith first took up the study of the House Sparrow in 1947, thinking that the difficulties of travel in post-war Britain would best suit the study of a species always close at hand. The humble House Sparrow, common everywhere, was surprisingly poorly researched and his work soon provided interesting insights into this successful and adaptable... more...

  • Great Auk Islands; a field biologist in the Arcticby Tim Birkhead

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    A book for professional and amateur ornithologists, students in ecology and animal behaviour. The Arctic is one of the world's last great wildernesses: a place of outstanding beauty, history and extraordinary wildlife in which seabirds form an important component of a rich, marine environment. Like many other remote regions, it is under threat... more...

  • Rare Birds Day by Dayby Steve Dudley; Tim Benton; Peter Fraser; John Ryan

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Rare Birds Day by Day follows three earlier Poyser titles looking at scarce and rare birds recorded in Britain and Ireland, Scarce Migrant Birds in Britain and Ireland (Sharrock, 1974), Rare Birds in Britain and Ireland (Sharrock & Sharrock, 1976) and Rare Birds in Britain and Ireland (Dymond, Fraser & Gantlett, 1989). Like these previous books, this... more...
