Mumble ist noch ein flauschiges Eulenküken, als Martin Windrow sie bei sich aufnimmt. 15 Jahre lang sollten die beiden unzertrennlich bleiben. Anrührend, charmant und mit unnachahmlich britischem Humor erzählt Windrow, wie die kleine Eule seinen Alltag auf den Kopf stellt. Er berichtet von Mumbles Leidenschaft, Schnürsenkel zu jagen, von ihren lausigen Landungen nach waghalsigen Flugmanövern und ihrem großen Bedürfnis nach Streicheleinheiten. Amüsiert lässt er die Reaktionen seiner irritierten Mitmenschen Revue passieren, die aber irgendwann akzeptieren: Windrow und Mumble sind Freunde geworden. Die Geschichte einer ungewöhnlichen Beziehung – die uns en passant alles über die Biologie und Mythologie der Eulen lehrt.

Wenn wir Bienen und Hummeln retten wollen, müssen wir uns auf die Suche nach ihren seltensten Arten begeben. Um zu verstehen, warum sie verschwinden, aber auch, um diese faszinierenden Geschöpfe in Erinnerung zu behalten. Der Biologe Dave Goulson hat sich an ihre pollenbestäubten Fersen geheftet. Egal, ob er den Kampf der Goldenen Patagonischen Hummel gegen invasive Arten beschreibt oder auf den Äußeren Hebriden die letzten Deichhummeln Großbritanniens aufspürt: Immer ist seine Leidenschaft für die Wildbestäuber ansteckend. Und seine Tipps, wie wir in unserer unmittelbaren Umwelt Bienen vor dem Sterben bewahren, machen unbändige Lust darauf, den heimischen Balkon mit Beinwell zu bepflanzen.

This is the first paperback version of the second edition of the popular A Guide to the Birds of Panama. In the second edition, published in 1989, the authors expanded information on the birds of Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Honduras: approximately 200 new species were added to the material in the 1976 edition. Over 300 additional species, some of them Panamanian, were illustrated. Sixteen new plates were added, and three of the original plates were replaced by improved versions. Throughout the book changes were made to accommodate the explosion in knowledge of the birds of Panama and nearby areas and of neotropical birds in general. The basic sequence and systematics of the AOU 1983 Check-list were adopted. Also included in the revised edition was expanded and updated information on birdfinding in Panama, prepared with the assistance of two of Panama's best resident birders. The book also contains a special section outlining developments in Panama ornithology and conservation.

Elusive study organisms for ornithologists and highly prized additions to the birder's life-list, the antpittas (Grallariidae) and gnateaters (Conopophagidae) are among the most poorly known Neotropical bird groups. This authoritative handbook is the first book dedicated solely to these two families, combining an exhaustive review of more than two centuries of literature with original observations by the author and many knowledgeable contributors. Antpittas and Gnateaters provides a thorough guide to the identification and ecology of these birds, with detailed maps accompanying the text. A series of superb plates illustrate most of the 156 recognized taxa; supplemented by more than 250 colour photographs, the immature plumages and natural history of many species are depicted for the first time. This book is the ultimate reference on these remarkable and beautiful birds, and an indispensible addition to the libraries of researchers and birders for many years to come.

The first synthesis of current knowledge of forest and wetland birds in the world’s southernmost forests, this book contains both original work by Rozzi and Jiménez and the results of a decade of research conducted by the scientists associated with the Omora Park. The first part is a guide to the forest bird populations and habitats in the Reserve, and a summary of the data recorded for the bird species captured with mist-nets and banded. The information is given in two pages for each species, with English, Spanish, and scientific names, as well as a full-color photo, distribution maps, a table with original morphological information, a figure indicating abundance rates, and a brief description of the species’ main features. The second part is a selection of twenty-two published articles on ornithological research at Omora Park during its first decade of studies, from 2000 to 2010. Eleven of the twenty-two articles were originally published in Spanish and are here translated and available to a larger readership. The reprinting of these articles in one place provides interested scientists, students, and wildlife managers a unique and convenient resource. “This book has two important sources of information: original morphological data and the compilation of all publications about the birds in the southern extreme of South America. I think the book will have great significance.”—Victor R. Cueto, professor of natural sciences, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina “A wonderfully rich and in-depth contribution to Sub-Antarctic Ornithology.”—Julie Hagelin, senior research scientist, University of Alaska, Fairbanks
