A useful reference work for traveling birders. This book contains current the taxonomy and the official names of 31 bird orders, 150 families and 3040 species of the Holarctic region in Latin (scientific) and 10 modern languages. By nature, our political borders are meaningless to birds. Similarly, these borders do not hold back professional ornithologists and amateur birdwatchers from following their study subjects, wherever they go. Both "species" are frequent travelers and real cosmopolites. 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 extended Holarctic region encompasses Europe, North Africa, the Near and Middle East, Asia north of the Himalayas, together with China, Japan and Taiwan, then 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 languages: 1. Latin (scientific names) 2. English 3. German (Deutsch) 4. Dutch (Nederlands) 5. Danish (Danske) 6. Swedish (Svenska) 7. Polish (Polska) 8. French (Français) 9. Spanish (Español) 10. Italian (Italiano) 11. Russian (Pусский) Language: English with multilingual list of species names in 11 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. birds, field guide, dictionary, lexicon, bird guide, birds, ornithology
