About the Author:

Steve Madge became interested in birds as a child, the honking croaks of ravens along the rugged coast of his native Cornwall being among his earliest memories. He still lives in Cornwall, but spends part of the year overseas leading birdwatching tours for Birdquest, the company he helped to form. He is a former member of the British Birds Rarities Committee, and has contributed many articles on birds to journals in various parts of the world. His previous book with Hilary Burn, Wildfowl, was a worthy winner of British Birds' 'Bird Book of the Year' award; he is also a co-author of two other Helm Identification Guides, Handbook of Bird Identification and Pheasants, Partridges and Grouse.



Hilary Burn is recognised as one of the leading bird artists in the world; her work has appeared in many books including Wildfowl of Europe, Birds of the Western Palearctic, RSPB Book of British Birds and Wildfowl. She is a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists.
