About this book

Birds of the Masai Mara is a remarkably beautiful photographic guide featuring the bird species likely to be encountered by visitors to the popular Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. With an eye-catching layout, easy-to-use format, and no-jargon approach, Birds of the Masai Mara contains more than 300 stunning photographs covering over 200 species of birds and is accessible and informative, rather than purely identification-based. A handy, brief introduction provides visitors with background on the habitats of the national park, and Birds of the Masai Mara's habitat-based approach makes it simple to identify any bird species according to where it is found. Based on the firsthand experiences of the author, Birds of the Masai Mara is an ideal companion to all those visiting the national reserve and to bird aficionados interested in learning more about the region.

Media reviews

"[...] For general ecotourists this book will prove an excellent resource, but birders should understand that much has been excluded, thereby reducing its value to this prospective audience. "
- Keith Betton, Bulletin of the African Bird Club 20(2), September 2013

"[...] Kennedy follows the nomenclature of the Bird Committee of Nature Kenya, preferring plover to lapwing, for example, and confines scientific names to an annex. Purists might baulk at this, but the Birds of the Masai Mara is perfect for its declared audience. References to other books and online resources are provided. Although I should have liked more on the conservation issues that influence the Mara and Kenya, that is not the book’s aim, and if copies find their way into the hands of the driver-guides, and into the schools that surround the park, perhaps a new generation of people will be inspired to ensure the region’s wonderful avifauna will continue to prosper."
- John Fanshawe, Ibis 156, 2014
