About this book

This comprehensive new field guide is an excellent addition to the world-renowned series – the ultimate reference book for travelling birdwatchers.

Every species of bird you might encounter in the region is featured, apart from non-established introductions. This includes coverage of the Greater Sundas (Sumatra, Java, Bali and Borneo), the Philippines and Wallacea (Sulawesi, the Lesser Sundas and the Moluccas Maluku). Also included are the endemic species from Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean. As many of the major subspecies as possible are also included.

Beautiful artwork depicts their breeding plumage, and non-breeding plumage when it differs significantly. The accompanying text concentrates on the specific characteristics and appearance of each species that allow identification in the field, including voice and distribution maps.

Please note that this book is published in the US by Princeton University Press with the title Birds of the Greater Sundas, the Philippines, and Wallacea.
