With its remarkably rich birdlife, Nepal has always attracted ornithologists. In this revised edition, the authors provide a wealth of up-to-date information on the 836 bird species found in the country. Breeding, habitat, behaviour and range are all covered in detail with special emphasis being given to the Himalayas. The book is fully illustrated with 703 distribution maps which cover all but the rarer and more localised birds. In addition, there is data on those species whose breeding behaviour is little known, and a section on the identification of difficult species. An avifauna with illustrations - not a field guide.
