All the Birds of the World: QUICK-FIND Index (1 Viewer)


Sempach, Switzerland
Like I often do, I compiled another Quick Index. This one for the new "All the Birds ..." single volume Lynx_HBW book. The pictorial compilations on the inside covers are fine, but by necessity non-alphabetic. and the fonts are not exactly eye-friendly, to put it mildly. In fact, for my compilation I used those illustrated pages, but I needed a medium-power magnifying glass to be certain I read the page numbers correctly.

I based my new list on the earlier ones I had done for the Illustrated Checklists, so things went pretty straightforward. See https://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=289327&highlight=illustrated+checklist&page=5 for the philosophy I followed (post #101). It is less comprehensive for the first volume though. The same holds now for the two parts here. The two lists can be downloaded freely by anyone who so pleases. I'd appreciate being notified about possible mistakes.

I should add that the respective lists in my two volumes of the Illustrated Checklist are the ones that I use very often, indeed. So no luxury as far as I am concerned.

The lists provided here fit well on the two blank pages next to the inside back cover. Also, there are two blank pages up front, just not adjacent, but also convenient. I will likely add the lists both up front and in the back. That is what I have done with the Checklists, too.
