“Birds of Cyprus” field guide review
FEBRUARY 27, 2020
Therefore, I was quite surprised when I learned that Helm has taken the gauntlet and, this January, published the “Birds of Cyprus” by Colin Richardson and Richard Porter. pounds to carry around, “Birds of Cyprus” (BOC) has 256 pages and weighs only one pound. BOC has 95 colour plates illustrating more than 400 species (three country endemics, Cyprus Wheatear , Cyprus Scops Owl and Cyprus Warbler , among them), with text and distribution maps on facing pages.
