About this book

Illustrated by Jill Adams and Norman Lighton
This oddly named book is in fact an introduction and authoritative reference to the birds of Southern Africa, but unlike other guides, this one describes and illustrates over 800 species according to habitat. For each species in each of the fifteen main habitats covered, details of behaviour, flight, voice and main identification features are given, plus a distribution map.
