About this book

Based on the highly acclaimed Birds of the Indian Subcontinent by the same authors, this superb guide covers northern India and Pakistan. Each plate is accompanied by text highlighting identification, voice, habitat, altitudinal range, distribution and status.

Northern India is defined for the purposes of this book as comprising the states of Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujarat, and the Union Territory of Delhi, which is arguably the area best known in Indian ornithological terms. The avifaunas of the Union Territories of Chandigarh and Diu are poorly known and they are here treated with Punjab and Gujarat, respectively. The book does not cover the states of Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal and the seven states that comprise northeast India (Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura) because their inclusion would substantially increase its size. These states are covered in Birds of the Indian Subcontinent
