Covering the eastern half of the island of New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago, Admiralty Islands and Bourgainville Island in the northern Solomons, this volume illustrates the 364 species of Passerines, from the Pittas to the Birds of Paradise, together with the Crows and allies. For each species, there are details of identification, distribution, habitats, altitudinal range, relative abundance, status, behaviour, diet, voice, breeding and subspecies. Also included are appendices on the avifauna of Irian Jaya and the Solomon Islands, thereby covering the entire Papuasian subregion. Beautifully produced.
