Présentation de l'éditeur

We can hear birdsong anywhere, whether we live in the city or in the country. Without the musical backdrop provided by our feathered friends, our gardens, parks, woods, fields and wetlands would be relatively silent - and much the poorer for it. Often we hear their calls, but cannot see the birds making them. This easy-to-use package of book and CD offers insight into the secret world of birds. The CD features 96 bird calls of species commonly found in a variety of habitats across Britain and the rest of Europe. Each audio track is numbered to coincide with the guide for quick reference. The book also presents full-colour photographs of the birds and interesting text about their habits, feeding and nesting routines, as well as their calls. Invaluable for birders of all ages and abilities, this CD and book offer an ideal way to increase your knowledge of bird identification and help to understand their behaviour. It is a guide for birdwatchers of all ages and abilities, from expert to beginner. It is ideal for home use or to take on birding trips. It will appeal to travellers, wildlife enthusiasts, students and specialists alike. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent photographs but for only 20% of China's birds 1 novembre 2008
Par Jack Holloway - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Basics: 1996, softcover, 144 pages, color photographs of 252 species, simple range maps

This compact guide offers decent color photos for 252 (20%) of China's 1,300+ birds. The large size of China with diverse habitats combined with the relatively low percentage of birds covered in this book means this photo guide should only be considered as a practice tool before visiting China. It's certainly small enough to carry around, but it's too limited to be of consistent help.

Nearly all the birds are shown with only a single photo. These photos are clear and well lit. The photos are smaller, which is necessary to make a compact book. However, the photo usually zooms in on the the bird to maximize its size. These pictures will be good enough to identify the bird - if you see that specific plumage of the bird.

Each bird receives a single paragraph of text with the photo. Most of this is dedicated to describing the bird. These descriptions are average and, while offering some details, are generally not in-depth enough to identify all the birds. A few additional lines are given for voice and habitat.

The same range map template is used for all birds. This is small (2.5 x 1.5cm) and uses only one color to denote the distribution. However, it is not apparent what the mapped distribution specifically shows. Breeding? Winter? Year round? At some point during the year? The book only states the maps can be used to "check whether the species can be expected at the given locality."

I liked this book to practice learning the birds, but a true field guide is necessary with this it. This book is really just a sampling of China's birds. Three books I recommend for China are "The Birds of Hong Kong and South China" (8th edition) by Viney, "A Field Guide to the Birds of China" by MacKinnon, and "A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Hong Kong" by the Hong Kong Birdwatching Society. Each has its strengths and limitations.

I've listed several related books below...
1) The Birds of Hong Kong and South China by Viney/Phillips
2) A Field Guide to the Birds of China by MacKinnon/Phillipps
3) A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Hong Kong by HKBS (ISBN 9621428947)
4) The Birds of China by de Schauensee
5) Atlas of birds of China by Qian (ISBN 7534915643)
6) Atlas of the Beijing Birds by Zhao (ISBN 7503822570)
7) The Avifauna of Hong Kong by Carey (ISBN 9627508020)
8) Birds of China by Zhang
9) Les oiseaux de Chine, de Mongolie et de Coree non passereaux by Etchecopar
10) A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Japan and North-East Asia by Shimba

4.0 étoiles sur 5 almost perfect 31 janvier 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book was very helpful when identifying birds of Hong Kong. The color photographs of each bird were clear and extremely helpful, and the descriptions helped me distinguish similar species if I was still in doubt after seeing the picture. The range maps seem accurate, and the book's small size makes it very portable and convenient to carry. The only drawback was that several species I saw, some fairly commonly, were not listed or pictured, so I was unable to identify them at the time. Overall, I would recommend this book for someone wanting to identify Hong Kong birds.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compact, clear and user friendly 28 mai 2011
Par Barbara Hill (Treats) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I love this book. I didn't want/need a huge compendium of Birds in China to carry around, and this is light, will fit in my hiking pocket, and the photographs are clear and helpful. I got it from Crzybulldogs, in perfect condition, and they sent it very quickly. Nuff said!

Nice size and a great starter book but very far from being comprehensive. Good price and good beginning. Need additional guides for a trip.
