"Illustrated checklist of the birds of the world Volume 1: Non-Passerines" is a true masterpiece. I was absolutely astonished at the beautifully illustrated birds and the abundance of information.
There are more than 4,500 species described in the book. Each species has a brief description, including status, taxonomic notes, distribution, and subspecies when applicable. It also provides information on 99 bird species that have gone extinct since 1500, 50 of which are illustrated. Appendix 3 has 34 maps for reference. In addition, a 54 page introduction provides a large amount of information on important terms used in ornithology, avian taxonomy, the species accounts and using the checklist, and the Tobias criteria. It contains pictures, diagrams, and illustrations.
The book is near perfect. Upon reviewing it thouroughly, I saw no mistakes. I am more than happy with the book and it is definitely worth the money!
