Product description


"We have waited some considerable time for a modern and usable
field guide to West African birds. Nik Borrow and Ron Demey clearly have
extensive field experience over many years in the region. Their knowledge
and expertise shines through in this excellent field guide to one of the
world's most exciting birding regions, and both are to be congratulated for
completing the task admirably." -- Bull ABC, January 2007


This new field guide uses all of the plates from Birds of Western Africa, with a concise, authoritative text on facing pages, to create a conveniently-sized, lightweight field reference covering all 1285 species found in the region. The book also has an updated colour distribution map for each species,conveniently placed on interleaved pages within the colour plates. Anumber of new images have been painted for this new field guide andseveral of the plates have been replaced. This is the firstcomprehensive field guide to cover the birds of this exciting region,and will enable birders to identify any species found in any of thecountries covered. Birds of Western Africa (Helm, 2001) was the firstsingle-volume guide to cover all species of this region, whichcomprises all countries from Senegal and southern Mauritania east toChad and the Central African Republic and south to Congo.
