Illustrated by Mongkol Wongkalasin and Kamol Komolphalin. Popular and important guide, containing a completely new and revised text and illustrations, essentially making it a new book. The introductory chapters describe Thai climate, habitats and zoogeography, conservation, plus an overview of ornithology in the country. There then follows a full section on birdwatching in Thailand, with details of sites, national parks and sanctuaries. The bulk of the book is the systematic species accounts; for each of the 915 species covered, common, scientific and Thai names, full identification notes, habitat, and status are given, along with coloured distribution maps. All species are illustrated, with sex/age variations where appropriate.
