A complete guide to the birds of Malta.


A complete guide to the birds of Malta.

Fenech, Natalino.

Midsea Books Ltd


424 pages




The popularity of the ancient Mediterranean tradition of hunting migratory birds has had a depressingly heavy impact on bird populations over Malta, as Fenech notes in both the introductory chapters and the catalog of birds in this volume. The first chapters of the book describe humans and birds on Malta in art and literature, common expressions, and hunting. Most of the volume, which is oversized (9.75x11.25") and well illustrated with color plates, is devoted to a thorough catalog of species, with lengthy descriptive entries included for each type of bird. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
