Birds of Mongolia
Mongolia encompasses a diverse range of habitats including forests, mountains, vast plains and of course the Gobi Desert. There has never been a guide to the birds of Mongolia before and this new field guide will provide full details of every species to be found in the country. Using plates specially created for the book, the guide will follow traditional field guide design with plates arranged opposite the text and maps.
