This brand new photographic field guide to the birds of Southern Africa presents more than 2500 images showing a wide selection of age and sex plumage variations, perched and in-flight birds, and colour morphs where relevant, making it the most comprehensive collection of bird photographs of the region ever produced in a single volume. It describes and illustrates all 958 bird species found in southern Africa, and an additional 17 species recorded from Antarctica, the Southern Ocean and associated islands.
Accompanying text focuses on identification, call, status, breeding details and diet. Also included for each species is a distribution map and a calendar bar indicating occurence and breeding months. Group introductions give additional information on biology and identification.
