There are over 1000 photos on 240 pages, in high quality and shot in their own habitat.

The species are described as well as their habitats and behavior so it’s their status and distribution. The contents of guide are divided as follows: Swimming Waterbirds, Flying Waterbirds, Walking Waterbirds, Gamebirds and Allies, Raptors and Owls, Larger Landbirds, Aerial Landbirds, and Songbirds.
