Shorebirds : an identification guide to the waders of the world by Peter Hayman( Book )

34 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shorebirds are among the most attractive and popular groups of birds in the world. They are of particular interest to birders because their widespread migration means that vagrants can occur virtually anywhere. Yet, until now, existing guides to these birds have been superficial and inadequate. Shorebirds: an identification guide is the first comprehensive handbook enabling birders throughout the world to identify any species in the field. It provides the information to help both the advanced observer and the careful beginner to identify not only the species, but also, where possible, the age, sex, or racial origin of the bird. A number of important identification features are described for the first time in this book, and both text and illustrations point out the essential details needed to make a positive identification of any species." -- Back cover

The Mitchell Beazley birdwatcher's pocket guide by Peter Hayman( Book )

11 editions published between 1979 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Birdwatcher's Pocket Guide is dedicated to the idea that birdwatching is about observing birds and not about consulting books, so it has been designed to give the most complete picture of each bird in the quickest way possible. Bird identification does not usually depend on spotting a single feature, but on noting size, shape, plumage, behavior, even facial expression in order to gain an overall impression. The illustrations in this book are designed to convey the many different aspects of character, appearance and behavior which identify each species. All birds illustrated are adults unless otherwise indicated, and male and female are only distinguished if they differ in appearance. The text supplies any information not carried visually, such as call, and gives further facts about behavior, numbers and distribution. Birds are grouped by resemblance; find a bird similar to the one being observed, then use a process of elimination until the right species is pinpointed. The species are divided into perching birds, game birds, predators and water birds, and within each of these groups are dealt with in roughly ascending order of size
