There are illustrations of over perched and flying birds, some with typical prey and facing texts summarising length, wingspan, male-to-female proportion, shape and flight. The text is further enhanced with line drawings illustrating specific points about identification and behavior.
This guide provides a comprehensive resource on the sunbirds and their allies, with 48 colour plates portraying all major plumage variations and many species depicted on typical food plants. The book covers all 75 wrens, 34 thrashers and 5 dippers, almost all of which are New World species.
The wrens Troglodytidae in particular display great diversity, occupying almost every kind of habitat in the Americas. The thrashers Mimidae include the mockingbirds, catbirds and tremblers. The dippers Cinclidae are river specialists although, unusually, they exhibit no obvious features for an aquatic existence. The detailed species accounts, account for the bulk of the book, providing knowledge on field identification, plumage descriptions, geographical variation The maps accompanying the illustrations show breeding and wintering ranges for all species.
Although the guide is not primarily intended for cagebird enthusiasts, it will also be useful for those wishing to know more about the species encountered in captivity. This reference provides a review of the group showing every species, all the main races and most sex and age variations.

Series: Helm identification guides
It contains portraits illustrating adults, immatures and most of the distinctive races. This guide covers species, covering all aspects of identification. The text includes sections on moult, voice, habitat and behaviour, distribution and measurements. Colour plates and a distribution map are provided for all the species.
It contains a full text for each species, including "wing-formulae" drawings. Some of the species covered find their way to the UK and Europe. The great majority, however, remain largely unknown, their only contact with humanity being the destruction of their specialised habitats. As a consequence, more than 20 species are now regarded as internationally endangered, some of which are very poorly known.
The 30 superb colour plates by Hilary Burn in this book depict them all; each plate is accompanied by an informative caption page summarising the criteria required to identify the species, alongside colour world distribution maps. Some of these birds, bearing such evocative names as the Banggai Crow, Mesopotamian Crow and Flores Crow, have never been illustrated before. The authoritative text by Steve Madge treats each species in depth, summarising identification techniques and concisely reviewing all aspects of corvid behaviour, distribution, population and taxonomy.
The author has had first-hand experience of most of the species during his travels throughout the world, travels in which he gradually became fascinated by this very special, but somewhat ignored, group of birds.
