About this book

Illustrated by Karen Phillipps
A major identification guide, and the first fully comprehensive work to the birds of this important region. All 820 known species are described in full, and illustrated on colour plates, with detailed notes on identification, voice, range, distribution & status, and habits. Plates do not face text. There are initial chapters covering the region's geography, climate, land-use and conservation, and the key birdwatching sites. There are appendices to land birds found on offshore islands groups; Bornean montane birds by mountain group; endemic/endangered species by islands; an annotated list of birds of the Malay Peninsula not described in the text; and regional organisations, journals and museums. A welcome and much-needed book.

Most highly recommended." --Wildlife Activist
"The most complete and comprehensive field guide for the region of the Greater Sundra islands is more than just a field guide. The heart of the book is a section of 88 very good color plates. No doubt, this top field guide will be wanted by any birder going to the Greater Sundra islands, as well as by many ornithologists as a general reference. I encourage everyone to have a copy." --Josef Kren, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, in Zpravy Mos
"Will make birding the region a pleasure. The authors have made the extra effort to produce a guide book that has virtually every type of information that a visiting birder might desire. Each species account is compact but
