Top 100 Birding Sites of the World
by Dominic Couzens
Top 100 Birding Sites of the World brings together a selection of the best places to go birdwatching on Earth. These are brought to life through the eloquent writing of Dominic Couzens and an array of stunning photographs. The sites are chosen for reasons ranging from having spectacular numbers of birds or species to experiencing amazing migration events and hosting rare or spectacular species. They span every continent and include famous locations from the Coto Donana and Manu to the Everglades alongside less well known but equally worthy destinations from Fiji and Kazakhstan to Gabon.
Each site features a map, list of key species and information about habitat and timing, along with a world site ranking, while the evocative accounts bring each location to life and explain exactly why it deserves to be included in the book, as well as justifying its site ranking.
Either as an inspiration for travellers or a reminder of places visited and species seen, Top 100 Birding Sites of the World is an essential companion for any birder.
