The Foreword is by Stephen Moss, and gives a global vision of the past, present and future of the observation of birds, from the first approaches to the birds by eccentric collectors to what today is a massive, global activity which influences the conservation of birds, the development of citizen science and has an undeniable economic impact.
This volume covers 17 families and 486 species, mostly distributed in sub-Saharan Africa (bush-shrikes, helmet-shrikes, oxpeckers), Madagascar (vangas) and Australasia (New Zealand wattlebirds, stitchbirds, mudlarks, Australian mudnesters, woodswallows, butcherbirds, bowerbirds, birds-of-paradise). Also included here is the Bristlehead, endemic to Borneo, and other families with wider distributions in the Old World (drongos, starlings, Old World sparrows) or practically distributed worldwide (crows).
