Seabirds of the World" represents easily the largest and most complete collection of seabird photographs ever published. I bought this book to carry on my yacht across oceans. It is extensively illustrated and gives mini-maps of the global distribution of each species. An excellent reference book. I look forward to using it to identify ocean birds.

If you enjoy seabirds and/ or do pelagic birding, this book is a great addition to your identification library! Beautifully put together book. The plates are actual photographs which come first in the book. The descriptions / bird info and range maps are all in the back of the book. And right after that, there are sketches in the very back to help with the finer points of identification. Fast delivery and recd book In great condition!

As a mariner who travels every ocean of the world, I see a lot of sea life... after hunting high and low for a comprehensive identification guide, Seabirds Of The World was my choice- and man! Am I glad to have this book! Sometimes the visible difference between a booby and a gannet, as seen through binoculars from the bridge, can be the telltale color of the feet... or the cormorant I am trying to identify can only be puzzled out by its range (helpful maps in the book)... all of which, and more, are in this book

I keep it in my sea bags and I don't leave port without it.

The guide itself is great for what it is and being from 1987. My problem is the fact that the author published the same exact book, with slightly different titles, under two different publishers. The description for this item says 1996, but beware it is just a reprint of the same book as Peter Harrison's 'A Field Guide to Seabirds of the World' 1987.

This is one of the most complete guides to identifying seabirds. This book makes it easy to identify each species by providing photos, descriptions, illustrations & a helpful index of English names.
Two to four photographs of each bird are located in the front. English & scientific names are given below along with the page the text is on. The age of the bird & month the photo was taken are also noted.
Next, a text description is given for each seabird. This includes height, weight, traits in age group & their habits. Distribution is both described & shown on a map.
Each of the six seabird orders is described pointing out their different characteristics. There is also a detailed drawing of the topography of a seabird. Another large illustrated section points out the distinct features of some of the birds.

The is full of detailed colour photos and the text is informative and concise. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anybody interested in seabirds.
