This identification guide on the pterodroma petrels of the North Atlantic is the culmination of many years of at-sea observations by the authors. It is the second in what is planned to be a four-part series on regular and vagrant bird species of the North Atlantic.
Species/taxa covered: Trindade Petrel, Kermadec Petrel, Atlantic Petrel, Great-winged Petrel, Bermuda Petrel, Black-capped Petrel, Soft-plumaged Petrel, Cape Verde (Fea's) Petrel, Desertas (Fea's Petrel) and Zino's Petrel.
Key features include:
Over 300 pages of detailed and original text
Over 350 colour photographs - majority previously unpublished
Over 40 stunning colour illustrations by Martin Elliott
Large format colour maps based on latest geolocator and observational studies
Two DVDs with 130 minutes of highly informative footage (both at sea and for some species, in-hand and at colony footage) with full narration
The DVDs follow the contents of the book, allowing cross-referencing and form an excellent preparation for a seawatch or a pelagic trip. The DVDs are in PAL format (multi-regional).
