Helm Field Guides; Birds of Central Asia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan
The first field guide to include the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, along with neighbouring Afghanistan.
This vast area includes a diverse variety of habitats, and the avifauna is similarly broad, from sandgrouse, ground jays and larks on the vast steppe and semi-desert to a broad range of raptors, and from woodland species such as warblers and nuthatches to a suite of montane species, such as snowcocks, accentors and snowfinches.
Concise text focusing on identification and maps opposite plates for easy reference. Important introductory sections introduce the land and its birds.

Since the publication of The Birds of Kazakhstan in 2007 a vast amount of new information on the status and distribution of birds in Kazakhstan has been published in journals, such as Dutch Birding, Sandgrouse, Selevinia and The Russian Journal of Ornithology. This information is brought together here and this full-colour book contains a wealth of new and up-to-date information on status, habitat, distribution and migration of all species recorded in Kazakhstan up to late 2015.
