About this book

Language: French

Birds of Western Africa (Helm, 2001) was the first single-volume guide to cover all the species of this region, which comprises 23 countries from Senegal and southern Mauritania east to Chad and the Central African Republic, and south to Congo. This new translated edition uses all of the plates from Birds of Western Africa, with a concise, authoritative text on facing pages, to create a conveniently-sized, lightweight field reference covering all 1300 species found in the region. Oiseaux de l'Afrique de l'Ouest also has updated colour distribution maps for each species placed on the text pages for the first time. A number of new images have been painted for this new edition and several of the illustrations have been replaced. This major new guide will enable birders to identify any species found in any of the countries covered.

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage présente toutes les espèces d'oiseaux nicheuses, migratrices et occasionnelles observées à ce jour en Afrique de l'Ouest, de la Mauritanie au Tchad, du Niger au Congo. Tous les oiseaux sont illustrés sur des planches couleurs qui présentent les particularités des adultes et des juvéniles, des mâles et des femelles, ainsi que des sous-espèces. Les monographies, en regard des planches d'illustration, couvrent les critères principaux d'identification : morphologie, variante du plumage, habitat, comportement et vocalisations, ce qui assure une connaissance complète des espèces.
