A useful reference work for traveling birders. This book contains current taxonomy and scientific species of 31 bird orders, 150 families and 3040 species of the Holarctic region, and the vernacular names in 10 modern languages.

This bird name handbook in 11 languages is a practical tool when traveling through continents and across oceans where residents and fellow ornithologists speak a wide array of languages.
The expansive Holarctic region encompasses Europe, North Africa, the Near and Far East, Asia north of the Himalayas, together with China, Japan and Taiwan, followedby Canada, Nunavut, Greenland, continental USA, subtropical Mexico, as well as the Arctic, North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans with their islands.
The official names and current taxonomy are given in 11 modern languages:
Ad Tolhuijs is a Dutch amateur ornithologist. After an international career as a communications and design consultant, he now dedicates much of his time to what has been his leisure pursuit ever since he was a twelve-year old boy: the world of birds. He dedicates this field guide to all professional ornithologists and leisure birders, as well as to all those (young) people who are actively engaged in the protection of birds, nature and wildlife conservation.
