  • 12 specially commissioned colour plates by John Busby, showing adults of all species and many juveniles, immatures and subspecies
  • 159 black-and-white drawings illustrating special features and behaviour
  • Descriptions of each individual species, including appearance, weights, and measurements; field characters; voice; habitat and food; breeding behaviour; life cycle; and range and status (with distribution map).
