Product Description

Synopsis

This text uses colour photographs to identify more than 900 species of birds known to occur from Antarctica to the Zambezi River. The book is divided into more than 150 plates, each grouping similar birds which are often difficult to distinguish in the field. Comparative descriptions are given, drawing attention to those diagnostic or distinctive characters that make field identification easy. For each species the scientific and English and Africaans common names, length, habitat and call is given. Relative abundance within the region is indicated and whether the species is endemic or not, while maps show where the birds are likely to be found.

Photos makes it easier to identify birds! 6 Oct. 2007
By M. Tran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the birds in Southern Africa, but I am also very bad at identifying them, so this book makes birding fun for me. I can quickly find the bird I just saw by flipping through the book. The downside is there is not always pictures of the bird at different angles or of the immatures. However, if you're a novice like me, it shouldn't matter much at all. Get Ian Sinclair's illustration version if you're more serious about birding.

Ian Sinclair's Field Guide to the Birds of Southern Africa (Photographic Field Guides)To have a photographic guide for indenification is a very necessary tool. This book is well written and was well worth the wait I had in receiving it. I recommend it for anyone taking a trip to Southern Africa, because after you have seen all the large game a number of times, birds become a challenge, beside being very beautiful.
