'...Christopher Helm's 'Birds of Kenya and Northern Tanzania' is a contender for the best field guide to any African country.' Travel Africa (October 1st 2011)
This field guide is an abridged edition of the very successful Birds of Kenya and Northern Tanzania written by the same authors. It covers all 1089 bird species known from the region, including vagrants. This book combines the format and detailed treatment of the larger version with the convenience of a field guide. All the species are illustrated with full details of all the plumages and major races likely to be encountered. Concise text describes identification, status, range, habits and voice with range maps for nearly every species. This authoritative book will not only be an indispensable guide to the visiting birder, but also a vital tool for those engaged in work to conserve and study the avifauna of these countries.See all Product description

So, bottom line: if budget, weight or space considerations limit you to only one guide book to the birds of the region, then let it be the HGBEA - it's a no-brainer in my view. But if you are birding in Kenya and/or Northern Tanzania (e.g. in the Serengeti) and enjoy using two or more guide books at once, then the Birds of Kenya and Northern Tanzania will be a worthy addition to your (by now pretty heavy) safari bag.
However, coming back from Kenya 3 years ago with around 3000 images of wildlife and a fading memory this book has helped me identify the birds quite easily. The birds are grouped into species/varieties, the images and descriptions are quite clear. Can't believe there is such a variety of birds in the region.
it has served many expeditions into the bush and it is still in good condition. the cover is doing its job of protecting the rest of the book.
it is easy to navigate through the book, great images and concise information all readily available. highly recommended for anyone with a general interest in birds.
