A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Indonesia: Second Edition (Paperback) A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Indonesia by Morten Strange is a very beautiful book. I have both editions of this book, the 2001 Edition and the new 2012 Edition. I was impressed by the first Edition of the book with its many great photos, and this new edition is even more impressing since it is a major upgrade with nearly 250 more species illustrated for a total of 912 species illustrated; and a comprehensive checklist of all 1605 species in Indonesia. Since there is few field guides currently in print covering this vast archipelago this is a must for birders in Asia, but it is a book for everyone with interest for birds. The information in the book is very good, since the text is well written, and information relevant as a guide for those who want to find the birds in the field. You will enjoy the informative text, and the many excellent photos. In Indonesia you can find some of the most beautiful creatures in the planet. With this book, you can study them on your own.
