This large-format wall poster is the first-ever to show all of Southern Africa's birdlife at a single glance. Southern Africa is blessed with an abundant diversity of birdlife. The Southern African region, though an area not delineated by rigid borders, is generally defined as that part of Africa lying south of the Cunene – Kavango – Zambezi Rivers.
This new wall poster lists all 978 bird species to be found in the Southern African region and illustrates 967 of them. Birds listed but not illustrated, for largely technical reasons, consist of a handful of petrels and other ocean birds and the Indian Peafowl. The bird illustrations in the poster are reproduced from the original paintings of the late Kenneth Newman.
The Birds of Southern Africa poster comes rolled in a 75 mm diameter clear PVC tube with plastic end caps which provides a safe and convenient way to carry and store the poster. Accompanying the poster is a separate index measuring 69 cm × 42 cm which lists the English, Afrikaans and scientific name of each species together with co-ordinates which allow any bird illustration on the poster to be almost instantly located.
