Book Preface

How this book works
This guide covers the 327 most commonly seen bird species in Europe. These are divided into six easily recognized groups: Passerines, Gamebirds and other non-passerines, Wading birds, Waterfowl, Seabirds, and Owls and Birds of Prey. Within each group, the birds are arranged broadly by family, so that similar looking species appear together for ease of comparison, and generally in ascending order of size, so the smallest birds are at the beginning of a section and the largest at the end.
GROUP INTRODUCTIONS
Each of the six groups opens with an introductory page describing the group’s shared characteristics. Photographs of representative species show the diversity in the group.
SINGLE-PAGE ENTRIES
Species that exhibit greater or more complex plumage variations are generally given a full-page.

SPECIES ENTRIES
The typical page describes two bird species. Each entry follows the same easy-to-access structure. All have one or more photographs of the species, all taken in the bird’s natural setting in the wild; these are supported by artworks showing the bird in flight. Annotations, scale artworks, and a set of simple symbols add key information. GROUP NAMEVARIATIONS
These tinted boxes show plumage variations relating to sex, age (juvenile, various immature stages, or adult), and season. The annotation emphasizes the main differences from the bird in the main image. This box may also show a subspecies, labelled with its scientific name.
