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.
