The definitive photographic guide to the amazing avifauna of Italy.

From the Alps and Dolomites in the north to the coastlines of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy has a diverse range of natural habitats. The country is also a migration path across Europe and Africa, making it an exciting place to spot both endemic and migrant birds.

This fully revised and updated guide to the birds of Italy by naturalist Marianne Taylor and Italian photographer Daniele Occhiato covers more than 320 birds most likely to be seen on any visit to the country.

Portable and reliable, the concise text for each species includes information on identification, songs and calls, behaviour, distribution, and habitat, with each photo carefully selected to aid identification. A guide to the best birdwatching sites in Italy is also included.

This is the perfect guide for travellers and birdwatchers visiting this spectacular and bird-rich country in southern Europe.
