Simple sampling of a few of India's birds in photos 3 July 2008
By Jack Holloway - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
softcover; 328 color photos of a sampling of 152 species in India; limited text gives information the bird's habitat and habits; no range maps

This is a small book offering a sample of birds found in India. These same birds also happen to be found in the other countries listed in the subtitle. Of the 1,400+ plus birds expected in this region, only 152 (11%) are covered in this book. The intent of the book is to offer an easy introduction to the person who is new to birding or, that may have an interest sparked by birds seen in his backyard. The author has selected a smattering of species to cover many of the prominent families of birds in India.

The color photographs are of good quality and many of them are are half-page in size. Most of the photos zoom in to show the birds up close, which makes this an attractive little book. Nearly all the birds have at least two photos and, many may have three or four photographs.

Each bird is accompanied with a brief amount of text, about 3-4 sentences in length. This material focuses almost exclusively on describing the bird's preferred habitat or, reviewing some of the typical habits of the species.

Basically, this book as an introductory sampler to some of India's birds, offered in a good photographic format. It offers only the most basic of information with no descriptions of the bird. This book might be enjoyed as a cursory overview for those people curious about birds or, as a small quiz for practicing with the photos. -- (written by Jack at Avian Review with sample pages, July 2008)
