Birds of Madagascar: A Photographic Guide
A superb photographic field guide to the Madagascan avifauna, with comprehensive descriptive text and over 500 colour photographs in total. It covers all 280 species known to have occured on the island up to 1997. The up-to-date text for each species gives a description of all known plumages likely to be encountered, vocalisations, habitat and behaviour, range (both within Madagascar and worldwide), status (including taxonomic notes where relevant), where to find the species, and an invaluable identification section. There is also a short section detailing the best birding sites.
