There are 848 species of wild birds recorded in Yunnan, which makes up nearly 9% of the birds recorded in the world and 65.5% of those in China. Due to its typical richness in pheasant and laughing thrush species, Yunnan won the reputation as the Kingdom of the Pheasant and the Kingdom of the Laughing Thrush.
In this book, the natural environment and special adaptations of birds in Yunnan are introduced, including the correlation between the birds of Yunnan and the physical geography, habitats and elevations, the avifaunal composition and its formation in Yunnan, the relationship between birds and minority human populations and decades of important bird distribution regions.
419 species of birds, their habitats and life histories are described, arranged into the following six categories: waterbirds, wading birds, upland ground birds, birds of prey, tree-cling birds and songbirds. Other knowledge and interesting facts of these species is also provided, which makes the book both scientific and interesting to the general public. More than 600 pictures are included of many species and various habitats and landscapes in Yunnan.
