The Birds of Africa, Volume 1: Ostriches to Birds of Prey
This is the first of a set of eight volumes which, when complete, will cover the entire avifauna of Africa, one of the most varied and interesting in the world. While many regional guides to African birds exist, this will be the first comprehensive guide to the bird life of the continent as a whole, including North Africa.
The entire set covers all species of birds found in Africa, including migrants from the Palaearctic and vagrants. Resident birds are described in full detail, with sections on their range and status, description, field characters, voice, general behaviour, food and breeding biology. Visitors are also given extensive coverage, with emphasis on their status and behaviour within Africa.
Each species is lavishly illustrated using field guide style in large format.
