Dempsey, Eric
Covers the whole process of appreciating birds on a generic level to the specific methods of identifying different species of birds. It is illustrated throughout with stunning full-colour images taken by some of Europe's leading bird and wildlife photographers. Part one covers many subjects from choosing the right binoculars to a more advanced understanding of how birds use their feathers and beaks. It looks at Ireland as a bird-watching country, and examines the different Irish seasonal migrations.It explains how and why birds communicate, their various nesting strategies, why Ireland has lost some birds and gained new ones, and examines the concept of what makes a species a species. Part two begins with 'Eric Dempsey's Ten Steps to Bird Identification'. This is Eric's own original, tried-and-tested method for the identification of Ireland's birds. It provides the best techniques to identify all the species you might encounter, from garden birds to ducks and geese, from owls to warblers and gulls. Written in a relaxed and easy-to-read style, and rich with breath-taking photographs, "Birdwatching in Ireland" is the book for anyone who has an interest in Ireland's birds. 229pp.Slight bump to bottom right corners.

Samarpan, Amano
Slight bump to spine.This title shows you Indian birds as you may never have seen them before! In these pages, you can see the details of creatures that otherwise, one might be able to afford only a glimpse of. This book of photographic portraits presents both common and seldom seen birds of the Indian subcontinent in their habitats not just as a way to more clearly identify and hence understand them but also because it recognises the important role that environment plays in their survival. The future of birds not only rests on the preservation of their habitats, the avian population is itself an important indication of the health of the environment. Birds typically have evolved through their ability to exploit a certain ecological niche. Although the environment a particular bird prefers over another is seldom a defining characteristic, such classification can help in identifying birds in the field and provide valuable data towards understanding their behaviour. 115pp.
