An essay on bird migration by Ian Newton precedes the family accounts. This volume continues coverage of the Passerines, with Remizidae (Penduline-tits), Aegithalidae (Long-tailed Tits), Sittidae (Nuthatches), Tichodromadidae (Wallcreeper), Certhiidae (Treecreepers), Rhabdornithidae (Rhabdornis), Nectariniidae (Sunbirds), Melanocharitidae (Berrypeckers and Longbills), Paramythiidae (Painted Berrypeckers), Dicaeidae (Flowerpeckers), Pardalotidae (Pardalotes), Zosteropidae (White-eyes), Promeropidae (Sugarbirds), Meliphagidae (Honeyeaters), Oriolidae (Orioles), and Laniidae (Shrikes). Illustrated with 60 color plates, more than 400 color photographs, 611 distribution maps.

Published in Barcelona in association with BirdLife International, the first fourteen volumes of the Handbook of the Birds of the World (HBW) have met with universal acclaim. This comprehensive, beautifully illustrated work has already become the definitive reference work to the bird families covered. This is the first work ever to illustrate all the species of birds in the world, in addition to providing access to all the essential information about each one of them.

Each volume measures 9 x 12 (24 x 31 cm). They are hardbound, with dust jackets. They include exhaustive family texts, plus detailed individual species accounts which include distribution maps. Each species is illustrated on a color plate, including all significant sexual and subspecific differences, and high quality color photographs depict many aspects of the birds' life and behavior. English, French, German, Spanish, and Latin names are given for each species. The series will be complete in 16 volumes.
