This volume is the largest in the series (895 pages) and includes the second part of oscines, with 12 families.

The families of Africa and south Asia are covered (cuckoo-shrikes, bulbuls, leafbirds, fairy-bluebirds, ioras, Hypocolius), as well as those of the New World (silky-flycatchers, Palmchat, mockingbirds & thrashers), among others that are also represented in Europe and northern Asia, such as waxwings, dippers and the almost exclusively American wrens, which include the exception of the common Northern Wren, a Palearctic bird.

The volume ends with the accentors, exclusively Eurasian, and the more numerous and widespread family of the thrushes, which includes some of the best-known and well-studied birds, meriting the longest Family Text in the encyclopaedia
