Robins and Chats

Peter Clement

Robins and Chats by Peter ClementThis authoritative handbook, part of the Helm Identification Guides series, looks in detail at the world's 170 species of robins and chats.

The vast majority of species are Eurasian or African, with only a handful of species straying into the New World or Australasia. The Australian Robins, although superficially similar, have long been regarded as a separate family.
