About this book

This is the only comprehensive photographic field guide to the birds of the entire Indian subcontinent. Every distinct species and subspecies – some 1,375 in all – is covered with photographs, text, and maps. A Photographic Guide to the Birds of India and the Indian Subcontinent features more than 4,000 stunning photographs, many never before published, which have been carefully selected to illustrate key identification features of each species. The up-to-date facing-page text includes concise descriptions of plumage, voice, range, habitat, and recent taxonomic changes. Each species has a detailed map reflecting the latest distribution information and containing notes on status and population density. A Photographic Guide to the Birds of India and the Indian Subcontinent also features an introduction that provides an overview of birdlife and a brief history of ornithology in India and its neighbors. The result is an encyclopedic photographic guide that is essential for everyone birding anywhere in the subcontinent.

Please note that this book was first published in India by Om Books in 2016. NHBS stocked and sold this version for a while until Princeton University Press acquired European rights to it.
