Field Guide=A guide with illustrations or photographs for identification
An easy-to-use, fully illustrated guide to the birds of Ireland.

This easy-to-use, full-color guide describes and illustrates 178 of the most commonly spotted birds in Ireland.

Specially designed for people with a general interest in birds, the species have been carefully selected to include those that the non-specialist birdwatcher is most likely to see. Usefully, birds are grouped together according to where they are most likely to be seen: in gardens, parks and buildings; farmland and hedgerows; woodland and scrubland; moorland and uplands; and freshwater or coastal areas, with background information given about each of these habitats.

Essential identification characteristics are given for each species, along with clear illustrations. There are also notes on distribution, numbers and migration for each species, and general pages for groups like thrushes, sparrows and finches will help you to distinguish between similar species. With definitive text, up-to-date distribution maps and superb illustrations, this book is the ultimate field guide to Irish birds, essential on every bookshelf and birdwatching trip.

Our Opinion: Despite the photo on the cover, this is an illustrated field guide, organized by habitat, illustrating 178 of the most commonly seen species, good for beginners or casual birders.  Each species has a full page to itself, with at least one illustration, often including females or juveniles when relevant, and a range map.
