Nowadays, scores of books about birds are published annually. Some are excellent, many are good and only a few are bad, but it is not always easy to distinguish those that are genuinely helpful and, in many cases, essential. We have, therefore, taken the opportunity to scan the books on our bookshelves, selecting those that we regard as reliable, useful additions to any ornithological library
