One of Britain's rarest breeding birds, the Golden Oriole is also one of its most charismatic. Females are a vivid green, while the males of this species are a stunning yellow and black, with an extraordinary and unforgettable song. A long-distance migrant, the orioles return to breed in early May at just a few sites, almost all of which are in Suffolk.

Jake Allsop and Paul Mason's The Golden Oriole looks in detail at the biology of this spectacular species, with sections on breeding biology, feeding ecology, evolution, population dynamics, mimicry, migration and conservation, as well as a discussion of the biology of other species in the genus. A colour section showcases this photogenic species to full effect, complemented by high-quality black-and-white illustrations throughout. The fascinating history of the bird's distribution is also covered extensively, stemming from the authors' first-hand experience of the battle to help the species retain a toehold in Britain.

The Golden Oriole is a much-admired bird, sought by serious and casual birders alike for the beauty of its plumage and song, as well as for its rarity. By bringing the biology of this elusive species to light, this book will prove a popular addition to the Poyser list.

· An authoritative yet highly readable book, detailing not just the biology of the species but also the extraordinary story of  the battle to save their breeding areas in Britain, enlivened by superb colour plates and illustrations

· The authors are among the foremost authorities on the species in the UK

· Despite its scarcity in Britain, the Golden Oriole is a familiar and popular species with birders due to its bright colours and exotic calls

· The species' main breeding locality in Britain, Lakenheath, has recently become an RSPB reserve that draws in large numbers of visitors to see the orioles
