Field Guide to the Birds of the Middle East

Published by Christopher Helm

This is the first comprehensive field guide dealing exclusively with the birds of this region. It covers all the species, including vagrants, found in the Arabian peninsula (including Socotra), Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Iraq, Iran, Turkey and Cyprus. Over 700 species are described in concise text with full details of plumage and voice. Distribution maps appear opposite the plates and are annotated with each species' status and preferred habitat.
