Product Description

Product Description

[A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Indonesia is a newly revised edition of the first—and best—comprehensive photographic guide to the birds of Indonesia.] Because of its vast size and geographical location, Indonesia has the world’s most diverse avifauna. It boasts of more than 1,600 species—of which 235 species are only found in Indonesia, making it the world’s number one travel destination for bird-watching.

[This book covers a total of 912 species, including most of the non-migratory and endemic species that are seen only in Indonesia. A photograph and distribution map is given for each bird.] Many new photographs appear in this volume for the first time and have been carefully selected to show the important characteristics of each bird. [The concise text provide vital information, and an index of common names is provided at the back of the book.]

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Edition a Major Upgrade 7 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback
I have both editions of this book, the 2001 Edition and the new 2012 Edition. This new edition is a major upgrade with nearly 250 more species illustrated for a total of 912 species illustrated; and a comprehensive checklist of all 1605 species in Indonesia. With so few field guides currently in print covering this vast archipelago this book and it's compact size make a worthy addition to your collection of books about Indonesian birds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Version was not easy to navigate 3 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was informative - when you knew what you were looking at. This is the first time I have tried a bird book on a kindle. I am going back to a hard copy next time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive 22 April 2013
By CSTE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Covers a wide area of Indonesia. Good and clear photographs making identification relatively easy even to someone with no knowledge of tropical species. Easy to read maps of distribution. Only downside is that it is a bit heavy to carry about in the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birds of Indonesia 17 Feb 2013
By jon
Format:Paperback
Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago, stretching over 3000km across the Pacific Ocean and holding over 1600 species of bird. A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Indonesia was the first publication, in 2001, to illustrate birds from throughout the country, but it only covered 686 species. Its author, Morten Strange, has now revised, updated and expanded the book to include 912 species, making it the first fairly comprehensive guide to the birds of Indonesia. 213 of these species are endemic residents found nowhere else in the world. Forty photographers have contributed to the book and the standard of the photos is generally excellent. They include recently discovered species, such as Togian and Cinnabar Owls, and unpublished species such as Geomalia and Buru Thrush. The accompanying notes are very useful, covering a brief description, voice and habits. There is also a complete annotated checklist to the 1,605 birds currently on the Indonesian list. My only minor criticism is that I would rather have seen more of the land-birds than some of the widespread waders and terns but I have no hesitation in strongly recommending this book to anyone interested in the birds of this fascinating part of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful Guide to the Birds of Indonesia 28 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback
A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Indonesia: Second Edition (Paperback)
A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Indonesia by Morten Strange is a very beautiful book. I have both editions of this book, the 2001 Edition and the new 2012 Edition. I was impressed by the first Edition of the book with its many great photos, and this new edition is even more impressing since it is a major upgrade with nearly 250 more species illustrated for a total of 912 species illustrated; and a comprehensive checklist of all 1605 species in Indonesia. Since there is few field guides currently in print covering this vast archipelago this is a must for birders in Asia, but it is a book for everyone with interest for birds. The information in the book is very good, since the text is well written, and information relevant as a guide for those who want to find the birds in the field. You will enjoy the informative text, and the many excellent photos. In Indonesia you can find some of the most beautiful creatures in the planet. With this book, you can study them on your own.
