About this book

Over 700 bird species breed in southern Africa: a mixture of resident and migrant birds in a huge range of habitat. Steyn, the author of several important works on African birds, brings his extensive knowledge, gained from over 45 years of study, to the multitude of species included in this large format book. His meticulous text and excellent photographs capture the nesting strategies and courtship behaviour of over 90 groups of birds - from ostriches to buntings. The information is presented in an easily digestible form and there are charts and tables for at-a-glance reference. A key reference work.
