About this book

Tourists are not the only foreigners who flock to Egypt to find solace in Egypt's eternal sunlight and indulge in the lush abundance of the Nile River-migrating birds from the north come too, and visitors luxuriating on one of Egypt's gorgeous beaches, touring historic monuments, or enjoying a cruise down the Nile are bound to encounter a wide variety of bird life. Water-resistant and compact, this handy guide to the resident and seasonal birds of Egypt is a perfect reference for birdwatchers keen and casual.
