  • Newly designed plates for ease of use and comparison.
  • More than 380 new improved illustrations.
  • Illustrations with simplified labels, pinpointing key differentiating features.
  • Updated distribution maps showing relative abundance and indicating resident or migrant status.

The larger format allows for better appreciation and easier use of the plates.
