After a delay of many years, Volume 2 in this excellent handbook has now been published (June, 2007). Together with Volume 1, over 380 species are covered.
These well-illustrated volumes cover the birds of Singapore, peninsular Malaysia, southern Thailand and the tip of Tenasserim (Burma) with their associated island archipelagos. David Wells' historically complete accounts draw on a full range of recent field and museum research. Over 380 species are described, including information on systematics, distribution, plumage, biometrics, status, habitat, food and foraging, voice, behaviour, breeding biology, moult and conservation. Together volumes 1 and 2 are the most complete modern summary of the birds found in the Thai-Malay peninsula.
