    This English version of Guide d'Identification des Oiseaux and Main, updated with 51 additional species, gives all ornithologists who handle birds the essential information regarding etc. accurate identification of species and subspecies, measurements, moult, sex and age.

    • Addition of distribution range of notes for all species,
    • Addition or EURING age codes 'moult' and 'age' sections,
    • Improved organization or figures clarifying them and becoming more comprehensive,
