Biography

Nik Borrow is an acclaimed bird artist whose work has appeared in many magazines and journals. This is his first major work and it is an outstanding feat to have painted all the plates in this sumptuous volume. Nik has travelled widely in Africa and has been a staff leader for Birdquest for many years, escorting groups of birders to Africa and elsewhere. Ron Demey is a freelance ornithologist who has lived and worked in several West African countries for many years. During this time he has travelled extensively in the region, amassing a considerable knowledge of its rich avifauna. He serves on the editorial team of the African Bird Club, and has worked on several African projects for BirdLife International.
