Anbietertext zur Ausgabe von 1985:
This hardcover book of 160 pages from 1974, revised 1982, contains 12 plates and 68 line illustrations of the birds of the Galapagos Islands. Here on the Equator are found penguins, albatrosses and red-ballooned frigate birds. Of particular importance are the endemic flightless Cormorant and the Galapagos Penguin. The landbirds include the tool-using woodpecker and Mangrove Finches, the Galapagos Hawk and the classic examples of beak adaptation among the finches and mockingbirds which impressed Darwin on his epic voyage of 1835.
