Not just a bird guide, but an almanac that speaks about all that is related to birds in Malta. The first part of the book deals with bird-man relationships from ancient times, in art and literature, in everyday jargon as well as in hunter's language.
Other chapters deal with conservation measures, bird migration, hunting and trapping, and bird-related social aspects. The second part is an ornithological account, giving and revising the status for species and sightings of birds in Malta. With over 50 new species added since the 2001 edition.
