Southern Africa has always been blessed with great field guides for birders, but the same has not been true for East Africa. The Field Guide to the Birds of East Africa changed that and the first complete guide to birds of East Africa remains the authority for birders to the region.

This comprehensive guide to 1 388 species of birds of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi features 286 excellent colour plates and 3 400 images. Illustrations, range maps, and text are on facing pages for easy reference in the field. This book has the advantage of covering the western limits in detail. Detailing resident, migrant, and vagrant species to the region, the text is written for ease of identification, including information on:
• Status
• Range;
• Habits;
• Voice

Birding in Africa is extremely satisfying and adds tremendous depth to the safari experience. No need to be an ardent twitcher - working out the more common species means that, while the lions sleep and zebra lie in the shade, you will still be kept busy with the myriad beautiful and fascinating African avian life.
