This pocket-sized, easy-to-use guide to the birds of Zambia features 425 birds likely to be seen in the region, plus a few 'specials' sought after by birders. Concise identification text for each species contains key ID pointers and a description of their call and favoured habitat. The accounts are accompanied by full-colour photographs illustrating diagnostic features and plumage differences (such as those between male and female or breeding and non-breeding birds). Distribution maps are provided for all featured species. An informative introduction comprises a habitat map, glossary, labelled bird diagrams, and descriptions of the habitats in Zambia and the bird species to be seen there. Light and handy for use in the field, this will be an excellent guide for local birders and visitors alike.
