About this book

Originally published in 2003, this was the very first comprehensive photographic guide to the birds of mainland Southeast Asia, the Philippines, and Borneo, including the birds of Peninsular Malaysia, Thailand, Indochina, South China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Covering 668 species, A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Southeast Asia contains a distribution map for each species in addition to more than 700 brilliant color photographs, many appearing here for the first time. The photographs are complemented by a concise text providing all the information needed to accurately identify species in one of the world's richest avifauna regions.

Given the notorious difficulty of photographing rainforest birds, A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Southeast Asia represents a major achievement. It is an ideal volume for travelers to the region as well as for all bird lovers. Morten Strange is a professional bird photographer and writer. He lived in Singapore from 1980 to 1993 and has traveled extensively throughout Southeast Asia. He was formerly the International Officer for the Danish Ornithological Society. His photojournalism has appeared in more than 60 books and more than 100 magazine articles.
