Very good paperback of the First Edition. Exlibrary markings, Previous owner's name on edges of text block. Illustrated by Steve N.G. HOWELL. A compendium of information on identifying, ageing, and sexing passerines and near-passerines in the hand. While of primary utility to banders, the wealth of information is of interest to both birdwatchers and ornithologists, whether engaged in bird banding or not. The second edition is also available from Buteo Books.
