Product description


"When one thinks of the sheer enormity of this project, the beauty and accuracy of the result can earn unusually high marks. In every way the work complements the diverse and fascinating panorama of African birds."--Larry Schwab, Wilson Bulletin


This volume covers the first 312 of the 1200 or so passerine species which occur in continental Africa and the outlying islands. Each breeding species receives full coverage, with sections on range and status, description, voice, general habits, food and breeding biology. Non-breeding visitors are treated more briefly with a text concentrating on the birds' status and biology while in Africa. Range maps are given for each bird and superspecies maps are shown where appropriate.
