A Field Guide to the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent

A very useful book. Not as big and heavy as some and good for the average birder. Perhaps not quite detailed enough for the more experienced. Maps are easy to sort out as each page is arrowed.

As an amateur this seems to me to fill the bill for taking on a trip not dedicated to birdwatching. The only caveat is the absence of the promised distribution map key on the inside back cover (thus the absence of the 5th star): but full marks to the publisher for service here. I emailed them about this and received a courteous response the same day with an attachment containing the key. So all ends well.

A really excellent book, very easy to use but as others have noted the key to the distribution maps is missing.

Brilliant field guide. A must for a birding tour in the Indian sub-continent. Clear maps - essential for such a diverse area.

This is a comprehensive field guide with decent illustrations, descriptions and maps. The only issue is that I could not find a key to the maps anywhere. As there is quite a range of colours and shading used in the maps, this makes them hard to interpret. In the text it suggests that the key is on the inside rear cover but it clearly is not. I have contacted the publisher to ask for a copy of the key and am awaiting a reply.

As previously mentioned, the all important map key is missing from the back cover. No amount of emails to the publishers elicit a response. Useless.
