About this book

Language: biBilingual in English and Kannada

From the preface:

"Within months of its publication, all the copies of Feathered Jewels of Coorg were exhausted. The book was well accepted and I received many healthy comments and suggestions from various quarters. The need for such collected data in the form of an illustrated field guide was evident more than before.

Welcome to the revised and enlarged edition of Feathered Jewels of Coorg. The text has been thoroughly revised and edited. All illustrations have been remade and an illustration of a pair of Binoculars with its parts is added. Five more species have been added. The spreadout map of Kodagu district is remade and includes all Sacred Groves found in Kodagu.

The overall layout of the book is different with illustrations arranged familywise for easy reference. A last column in the Appendix suggests those birds that you get easily confused with in the field. The checklist of all birds of Karnataka and their standardised Kannada names has been added and the same Kannada names are used in the whole work. You see more Kodava names than the previous edition."
