Understanding bird behaviour is one of the vital keys to accurate identification in the field, this book provides the experienced instruction needed to recognize behaviours and get the most out of watching birds. The guide covers all the fundamental types of bird behaviour, including movement, feeding, breeding, migration, navigation, distribution, range, life and death, all of which are illustrated with beautiful photographs. There is a whole section dedicated to the behaviour of different species groups, from divers and grebes through to sparrows, buntings and finches. While this title focuses on the birds of Britain it will be of interest to birders everywhere.
