Albatrosses, Petrels and Shearwaters of the WorldAlbatrosses, Petrels and Shearwaters of the World
Famous for their size and elegance in flight, albatrosses are familiar to anyone who has travelled through the southern oceans, and are a flagship family of conservation concern. However, they are just one of several groups of ‘pelagic’ birds that visit land only to breed, and spend the rest of their lives far from the coast. Mysterious and graceful, these birds can present a formidable identification challenge.This book provides the answer — 46 spectacular colour plates highlight key identification criteria of the birds in flight.The plates are accompanied by accurate distribution maps,while the sparkling text emphasises how to distinguish similar species.
