About this book

A fully comprehensive field guide to the 521 officially recorded bird species of Mongolia. The species are clearly illustrated in over 154 plates, showing plumage variation between sexes, seasons and age classes, as well as the upper side and underside of birds in flight. Common, scientific and Mongolian names are given for each species. The main identifying features of each species are described and key facts cover habitat, identifying features and voice. Distribution maps provide an at-a-glance view of where and when the birds can be found. The book also includes information on the geography and major habitats of Mongolia.

  • The world's least populous country!
    By Keith 3 Nov 2019 Written for Paperback
    I am heading off to Mongolia in May so this book’s arrival on the market is well-timed for me! With birds such as Altai Snowcock, Black-billed Capercaillie, White-naped Crane, Relict Gull, Pallas’s Sandgrouse, Kozlov’s Accentor, Hodgson’s Bushchat, Güldenstädt’s and Eversmann’s Redstarts, Henderson’s Ground Jay, Asian Rosy Finch and Pallas’s Reed Bunting I am already thinking about it a lot. The book features around 520 species which are spread over 154 plates by Dorj Ganbold. These show the plumages you need to see in the same style (all facing right). Raptors, wildfowl and waders are also shown in flight (as are some others) and where there is variation between the sexes this is given too. Texts of around 150 words per species cover a concise description, plus an indication of habitat alongside a range map that indicates seasonal occurrence of each species and also the relative altitude. Mongolian names are given for each species. There is also an introductory section explaining the geography and major habitats of Mongolia. I can’t wait to use it in the field!
