PostPosted: Wed Aug 24, 2011 4:40 pm    Post subject: New book about breeding birds in Malta

BirdLife Malta’s new publication:


Joe Sultana, John J. Borg, Charles Gauci & Victor Falzon

With a foreword by Marco Lambertini, CEO Birdlife International

Hardback – 380 pages – 459 photographs - 40 Maps – 142 tables, graphs & charts

The aim of the book is to review and update the status of the breeding birds of Malta, and to present a historical overview.

The first chapter sets the backdrop by outlining the Maltese Islands' geography and main habitats, as well as some of the effects of the human impact on the natural environment, also highlighting landmarks in bird protection legislation, and BirdLife Malta’s contribution to ornithology.

18 chapters focus in detail on the regular breeding birds of Malta, with a chapter for each species giving chief characters, voice and diet, local status and distribution and breeding behavior, including the results of all local studies as well as outlining the birds’ breeding history, trends and conservation status.

Chapter 19 deals with another twenty-seven species that breed irregularly or only began breeding very recently. The last two chapters cover birds that bred in the past, doubtful breeding records, as well as feral and introduced species.

To complement the text and to celebrate the beauty of our birds, the book is illustrated with over 450 photographs, as well as plenty of maps, charts and tables.

The authors, producers, and photographers offered their work and assistance free of charge to BirdLife Malta.

Hardback: Price (not including postage & packing): 33 Euro
