This fully updated edition of Birds of Nepal is the most comprehensive guide to the birds of this beautiful Himalayan country. The texts have been completely re-written for this edition and many of the illustrations have been replaced. In addition, maps have been included for the first time.
Every species recorded in Nepal is covered, including vagrants, with accurate distribution maps for most species. 142 colour plates are featured, illustrating more than 790 species with text on facing pages for quick and easy reference. The comprehensive text covers identification, voice, habits, habitats, altitudinal range, distribution and status.
"This a thoroughly revised and updated edition of what is now claimed to be, surely justifiably, the most comprehensive guide to the birds of Nepal. Not only have the texts been completely rewritten, but they face the illustrations (many replaced) of more than 790 species on the plates. [...]"

"[...] This is a very useful book, and if you are heading to Nepal for the first time, an essential addition to the hand luggage. If you have been before and are heading back, it is well worth upgrading from the first edition."
