Product Details

Field Guide=A guide with illustrations or photographs for identification
With more than 50 gull species in the world, this family of seabirds poses some of the greatest field identification challenges of any bird group: age-related plumage changes, extensive variations within species, frequent hybridization, and complex distribution.

Gulls of the World takes on these challenges and is the first book to provide a comprehensive look at these birds. Concise text emphasizes field identification, with in-depth discussion of variations as well as coverage of habitat, status, and distribution. Abundant photographs highlight identification criteria and, crucially, factor in age and subspecific field separation. Informative species accounts are accompanied by detailed color range maps. Gulls of the World is the most authoritative photographic guide to this remarkable bird family.

-The first book to provide in-depth coverage of the world's gull species -More than 600 stunning color photographs -Concise text looks at variations, habitat, status, and distribution -Informative species accounts and color range maps

Klaus Malling Olsen is widely regarded as the world's foremost gull expert. His previous books include Terns of Europe and North America and Gulls of North America, Europe, and Asia (both Princeton).
