Overview
-

This practical, straightforward guide to some of the most commonly seen birds in southern Africa is aimed at beginner birders, or even juniors. Less daunting than a full-blown field guide, it’s handy and accessible, combining simple text with clear artwork and photographs to introduce 300 of the region’s easy-to-see birds.

For each bird the book offers: simple text, including how to ‘find it’, ‘identify it’ and ‘understand it’; color images, both illustrations and photographs; a distribution map; common English names, plus scientific, Afrikaans and other African names; average size, details of the nest and the number of eggs laid on average; interest boxes for some birds, providing extra information.

Colorful, to-the-point and offering quick ID pointers, this book should find a ready market among birders and outdoor enthusiasts.
