Great book whats with the cover,
This review is from: Field Guide to the Birds of Western Africa (Helm Field Guides) (Paperback)
I was off to Ghana and I need a book to swat up on the birds of that area and there are a few around, and out of all of them this stood out as the best. So I brought it and it was perfect and came in very usful. I do have problem though its only a small one and it might be me just being picky or showing off depending on how you look at it.
The cover shows a pair of Yellow-headed Picathartes with one sat in the nest and it is attacted to a branch of a tree. Our group got to see 5 of these very rare endangered birds when we visited a nest site, and the nest are like large House Martin nest stuck to the roof of caves, not on a branch of a tree which explains their other name Rock Fowl, Like I said it's just me being picky.
