Pocket Photo Guide: Birds of Sri Lanka
Please note, this is a reissue of A Photographic Guide to Birds of Sri Lanka, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers. A compact, easy-to-use bird identification guide for any nature watcher on a visit to Sri Lanka, a rich and satisfying destination for watching birds with more than 430 species identified on the island. A total of 252 species is described here in detail, from the Black-rumped Flameback to the Ceylon Blue Magpie. All of these birds are clearly illustrated in a collection of specially commissioned colour photographs. With almost 300 full-colour photographs, easy-to-use thumbnail family silhouettes, a regional distribution map and handy tips on the best birding localities. 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 Sri Lanka to be carried around on trips and excursions and will take up minimal rucksack and suitcase space.
