Field guide

Finnaly I got from the print-house the first field guide illustrated by me. This field guide was edited within the project “Systematic environmental education program in Mures County”, started in autumn 2007 by Milvus Group. My role was to illustrate the birds and design the book. There are some pictures of the fieldguide.
