A recent ACAP Monthly Missive praises "Seabirds: The new identification guide" by Peter Harrison, Martin Perrow and Hans Larsson (2021). The missive gives a little history and insight to the lifelong passion for seabirds of author and illustrator, Peter Harrison.
This book itself is a comprehensive guide to the world’s 434 species of seabirds. Beginning with seaducks and grebes and ending with cormorants and pelicans, it covers all known species of seabirds, including those recently rediscovered and rarely seen. The guide is beautifully illustrated and detailed throughout its 600 pages.
