Pocket Photo Guide to the Birds of Borneo, Sabah, Sarawak, Brunei and Kalimantan
Please note, this is a reissue of A Photographic Guide to Birds of Borneo, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers. The island of Borneo is one of the world's biodiversity hotspots and a birdwatcher's paradise. Around 600 species of bird have been recorded here, and some 430 are known to breed. Many of these are rainforest specialists, but such a large island also has widely different habitats attracting a surprisingly wide range of avian visitors. Of particular interest are the 30 or so species that are endemic to Borneo, ie found nowhere else in the world. This concise and easy-to-use guide features 252 of Borneo's most interesting and spectacular birds, with each species illustrated in full colour and with key information on identification, habitat and distribution. Illustrated with clear colour photography and brief but authoritative descriptions the Pocket Photo Guides highlight the species of birds and animals from each region that the traveller is most likely to see, as well as those that are genuinely endemic (only to be seen in that country or region) or special rarities. The genuine pocket size allow Pocket Photo Guide to the Birds of Borneo to be carried around on trips and excursions and will take up minimal rucksack and suitcase space.
