4.0 out of 5 stars Practical field guide, 9 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Birds of Southern Africa (Collins Field Guide) (Paperback)
I ordered this book after some on-line searching in preparation for a business trip to South Africa, luckily with some time to do a bit of birdwatching. My key requirements were that it should be up to date, complete and not too heavy. I'm happy to say that this book met all those requirements. A very practical size, and therefore easy to take along. A huge number of birds is covered, also for other Southern African countries.

On the downside, the colours were sometimes a bit off, and not always are both perched and flying images included. Maps are to the back, which is not ideal, but easy enough to get used to.

I was very happy with this book, and will gladly take it along again, if I get another chance to visit a Southern African country!
