Please note, this is a reissue of A Photographic Guide to Birds of Bali, Java and Sumatra, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.
This text is a compact, easy-to-use bird identification guide suitable for any birdwatcher visiting the Indonesian islands of Java, Sumatra and Bali. The book features descriptions of 236 species, thumbnail silhouettes for ease of use, up-to-date tips and information on bird biology and behaviour.
Based in Britain, but travelling worldwide through many countries including Europe, Asia and America, Tony Tilford has accumulated a unique library of colour photographs of animals; many rare, threatened or endangered. Sharing the beauty of these pictures has been possible by publication in books and magazines to which he also contributes as a specialist author.
"A small and reasonably priced field guide, this might seem like a logical first option when looking for a guide to these three Indonesian islands. However, you do get what you pay for: the experienced birder will be left disappointed. [...] All in all, this guide might be useful for the beginning birder in Indonesia, especially to identify down to family or genus level. For any more in-depth identification, this guide will probably leave you wanting more."
