Helm Field Guides; Albatrosses, Petrels and Shearwaters of the World
Famous for their size and elegance in flight, albatrosses are familiar to us all, but they are just one of several groups of pelagic birds that visit land only to breed, and spend the rest of their lives far from the coast. Mysterious and graceful, these birds can present a formidable identification challenge.
46 colour plates highlight key identification criteria of the birds in flight.
