A Photographic Guide to Birds of Southern Africa

Recommended Price 
October 2004
About the book: 

World-wide, bird- watching is a burgeoning pastime. A wealth of books on bird identification now exists, many of which are confusing in their completeness, particularly for a region such as southern Africa in which more than 900 species occur. 

However, of this number only a few hundred are conspicuous and likely to be frequently encountered: the remainder are either not common, have very specialised habitat requirements or are different to find or identify, even with the help of a field guide.

By focusing on the 265 most abundant and obvious species, Photographic Guide to Birds of Southern Africa is ideal for the person who wishes to identify quickly and accurately the birds that a person sees in their garden, along the roadside or in a game reserve.
