About this book

Bird watching, especially by enthusiastic novices, is presently one of the fastest growing pastimes in the world. It offers healthy relaxation and exercise with the added benefit to enhance the bird watcher's knowledge about nature and to contribute to our scientific knowledge. The Lowveld of South Africa, which is home to arguably the most well-known and popular game reserve in the world, the Kruger National Park, is to a large extent still unspoilt and the peaceful home of its exceptionally rich birdlife.

"The Spotter's guide: Birds of the Lowveld", compiled by two of South Africa's most distinguished birders and in association with ornithologists, museums and bird clubs, is an innovative and practical field guide in a handy pocket size that features all the bird species normally found in the Lowveld. The condenced list makes the identification task of the 541 regular and 47 visiting bird species a great deal easier. It includes a bilingual index of common group names, and a handy Shapefinder and excellent photographs for quick and easy identification.
