Birds of the Indian Subcontinent (Helm Field Guides)
'The authors' and artists' additional and welcome hard work has resulted in better plates, text and maps incorporating all known and possible splits and much other new information, rendering this single volume pretty much indispensable to a birder travelling in the subcontinent,' Richard Schofield, for British Birds. June 2012.
This new field guide is the fully revised and updated successor to the bestselling 'Pocket Guide to the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent' by the same authors. Covers all the bird species found in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and the Maldives. Includes all residents, migrants and vagrants.
The plates face the descriptions and maps for quick at-a-glance reference. Many of the plates have been repainted for this edition and a number of new species added. This guide also provides tables, summarising identification features of particularly difficult groups such as nightjars, warblers and rosefinches.
