3.0 out of 5 stars Simple sampling of India's birds in photos 3 July 2008
By Jack Holloway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Basics: 2006, softcover, 154 pages, 328 color photos, 152 species, no range maps

This is a small book offering a small sample of birds found on the Indian subcontinent. Of the 1,300+ plus birds expected in this region, only 152 (12%) are covered in this book. The author selected a smattering of species to cover the key families.

The photographs are good and show the birds up close. Nearly all the birds have at least two photos; many have three or four.

The text is a brief, general overview of the bird's habits.

Basically, this book as an introductory sampler to some of India's birds, offered in a good photographic format. It does not offer much information, but might be enjoyed just as a cursory overview for those people curious about birds or, as a small quiz for practicing with the photos.
