The Illustrated Guide to the Birds of Southern Africa
Illustrations by Peter Hayman and Norman Arlott
A major field guide, which describes and illustrates every accepted species on colour plates, over 900 in all. The Larger Illustrated Guide is a revised, slightly larger-format edition of The Illustrated Guide. In both editions, a full identification text, compiled by leading ornithologists, is accompanied by colour plates showing species in all plumages, and in flight. Full distribution maps are also included.
`...becomes the most important field guide for the region and ... by definition for the continent as a whole.' Jon King, IBIS
