About this book

A Field Guide to the Birds of Borneo is the first comprehensive and accurate guide to the varied avifauna of this island biodiversity hot-spot, which comprises Brunei, the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, and the Indonesian states of Kalimantan.

More than 630 bird species have been recorded in Borneo and, using the most up-to-date taxonomy and nomenclature, the guide includes all recently split species and also gives full coverage to the distinctive Bornean races where they differ from their counterparts on neighbouring islands or in mainland South-East Asia. Borneo is of particular ecological significance; the unique combination of its tropical latitude and the relief of the land, which includes high mountains and rainforests, has created many isolated micro-habitats which have enabled a remarkable number of different species of birds to evolve, many of which are endemic to the island.

Every species recorded is described in detail with key identification characteristics and habitat information given, plus a colour distribution map. All species are illustrated in the 246-page full-colour ID section, with paintings by the same expert team of artists who worked on New Holland's celebrated "A Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia".

  • Errors in proof reading/printing
    By Arthur 14 Feb 2017 Written for Hardback
    Nice artwork in this book. It is a shame that it was not properly proof checked prior to the print run as there are errors that should not have passed into print. Page 144 has Blue Eared Barbet and Bornean Barbet depicted as the same bird, both birds are actually Blue Eared and exactly the same picture, Bornean Barbet is not shown. This can only be described as 'sloppy' and when you come across such an error you have to wonder what other errors are in the text and plates, the rest of it may be okay, I didn't bother to check, not my job.
