About this book

South Africa boasts more than 1000 species of bird - from the unmistakable ostrich to the secretive Knysna loerie and rare visitors like the tropic birds, which are usually only spotted by the most intrepid of twitchers.

Remarkable Birds of South Africa is not meant to be a field guide, but rather gives the reader an overview of the huge variety of birds right on our doorstep. Arranged in taxonomic order, it provides the reader with fascinating notes about the weird and wonderful lives and habits of many bird families or species. There is information on their appearance, voice, preferred habitat, distribution, feeding behaviour, breeding method and much more. Each family is illustrated with carefully chosen full colour photographs.

This book is a celebration of our great avian diversity. But sadly, many of South Africa's bird species are endangered and even face extinction due to habitat modification and human disturbance. Remarkable Birds offers a glimpse into the fascinating world of birds and hopefully this book will contribute to knowledge and interest in the remarkable diversity of birds with which South Africa has been blessed.
