Ediciones OMEGA
<p>The most comprehensive guide to bird identification ever published. With 360 color plates including 6000 illustrations, 600 distribution maps, and extensive text covering all aspects of identification.

It is the first identification manual to cover all the species that have lived in our region, to illustrate each of them (including vagrants and accidentals) and to show the widest range of plumages that have ever appeared in a European guide. There is no doubt that no birder will be able to do without this book, given the breadth of the subject matter it covers and its unprecedented authority on the subject, all the more so as this work is most likely destined to become the standard of comparison for all future guides.
