Rare Birds Yearbook 2008: The World's 189 Most Threatened Birds
The vision of the Rare Birds Yearbook is to improve the chances of survival of the world's most threatened birds in two ways. Primarily to describe the situation of the 189 Critically Endangered species in a comprehensible way to appeal to dedicated ornithologists, birders and general readers. This title places the spotlight on the often dramatic circumstances which have pushed a large number of species to the brink of extinction and also highlights examples of cases where active commitment and hard work have improved the bird's prospects.

This book is the companion volume to the Collins BTO Guide to British Birds. It covers all the rare and scarce birds that have occurred in Britain and Ireland five times or more, as of February 2015. Unlike its companion volume, distribution maps are not included, as they are of little relevance when dealing with rare and scarce birds in Britain and Ireland: by their very nature, vagrant birds can turn up almost anywhere. However, where a part of Britain or Ireland is noteworthy for the occurrence of a given species, then the region in question is mentioned in the text.
