(1985) 1985 1st US edition. Buteo Books. Vermillion, South Dakota.
Large 4to. Ppxxx,670. B/w photographs & illustrations, maps. Blue cloth. Fine in dust-wrapper.
Huge and comprehensive encyclopaedia of the biology and ecology of birds with many illustrations and maps. The word "dictionary" does not in any way do this book justice. Essential reference work for anyone interested in ornithology, with many long and readable articles. This is the American edition of Poyser's original title, the two books being to all intents and purposes identical.
