Product description


East Africa is one of the only places in the world where it is possible to see over 200 species of bird in one day. This richness has attracted bird watchers from the four corners of the world and has made Kenya and Tanzania the most popular wildlife tourist spots in the world. This book illustrates and describes every species of bird found in the area. The text details what kind of habitat the birds are found in, key identification features and notes on the calls and songs of each species. Maps are also included for every species to show where the species occurs in the area.

From the Back Cover




• The only field guide to illustrate every bird species you will see in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia and Socotra Island.
• 1487 species are illustrated in colour. For many species the female or juvenile is shown in addition to the adult male. Any races or colour forms have also been included.
• Informative notes on each species are conveniently placed opposite the illustrations. The text describes key identification features, the bird's usual habitat and the sound it makes.
• Each species has a map showing where it can be found and how common it is.
