About this book

Concise edition of Robson's Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia first published in 2000. This guide is more portable and compact than its predecessor but still manages to include an extra 38 colour plates to aid identification. As in the previous volume, Robson details the plumage variations of 1,250 bird species found in South-East Asia and Thailand.

The guide has no distribution maps, distribution is indicated in each species account simply by mentioning the name of the country, and, using abbreviations, the rarity of the bird and whether it's a resident, vagrant etc.

Craig Robson has travelled regularly to South-east Asia for the last 20 years, having seen and studied more bird species of that region than anyone else in Europe. He helped launch the thriving Oriental Bird Club and served on the Council of the OBC for 5 years, writing numerous papers in their journal during that time. Craig is based in Norfolk, England. A selection of leading artists, all of them specialists in their fields, have been specially commissioned to provide the full-colour identification plates. The artists include Richard Allen, Hilary Burn, Clive Byers, Daniel Cole, John Cox, Antony Disley, Martin Elliott, Mike Langman, Ian Lewington, Andrew Mackay, Stephen Message, Chris Schmidt, Jan Wilczur and Tim Worfolk.
