Outstanding quality - in both text and pictures,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Birds of East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi (Helm Field Guides) (Paperback)
I bought this to accompany me on a safari to Kenya and was not disappointed with my choice. It replaced my previous East African bird book that had finally given up the ghost after many years of loyal service and I was a bit dubious to change to this but my worries lifted as soon as I received it. However, the real joy was using it in the field and it quickly became the "go to" bird book amongst my fellow travellers.
The text is crisp and concise and the drawings are beautifully clear.
Yes, the book is on the heavy side ( as frequently mentioned in other reviews ) but I found no difficulty packing it along with mammal reference books, camera, binoculars and clothing and still staying within the 15kg allowance for the light aircraft transfers between reserves. Practice in packing makes perfect and this book is as near to perfect as one can reasonably expect from a field guide.
