Biography

Bikram Grewal grew up in the dense evergreen forests of India's north-east where he first developed his love for birds. He gave up his full-time publishing career to devote his time to the conservation of Indian wildlife, especially working on rare birds. He is the author of over ten books on birds of the subcontinent and also acts as a consultant on eco-tourism to several Indian states. He helped conceive the 'birdsofindia' website, which is now the biggest birding site in India and is ranked amongst the top ten birding sites in the world. He is a trustee of the Wildlife Preservation Society of India (WPSI). He was awarded the Lifetime Award for spreading awareness about birds and conservation in India.

"[...] All in all then, this is a useful guide for naturalists and birders, especially when visiting South Asia for the first time. For return visits I would recommend more regional and more extensive field guides."
– Vincent Nijman, Ibis 157, 2015
