The definitive work on shrikes – small, beautiful birds that are also deadly hunters. Everyone loves shrikes. Beautiful, colourful, often fearless hunters of large insects and small vertebrates, shrikes are among the most prized of all avian groups by birders. And while the one resident species in the UK is now more or less extinct (and the other European species are rare winter visitors), shrikes are common throughout the rest of the northern hemisphere, with a large number of species. This is a second edition of Norbert Lefranc’s Shrikes. It is fully updated from the superb 1997 edition, with detailed maps to accompany the authoritative text, along with hundreds of high-class photos showcasing racial and ageing differences. The exceptional plates are by Tim Worfolk. This beautiful book will be treasured by birders and professional ornithologists alike. It becomes the definitive work on these birds.
