A new field guide that changes the face of bird watching in South Africa. The field guide features: interesting text that does not merely describe what can be seen in the photographs, but also offers a wealth of extraordinary facts. new updated distribution maps. informative icons: species can quickly be compared with the help of icons illustrating normal habitat, nest position, relative size and social behaviour. more than 800 quality full colour photographs by renowned photographers. efficient grouping: bird species are grouped together according to four behaviour groups: Waterbirds, Raptors, Veld Landscape and Bush Landscape birds. Grouping is then further broken down into the birds' external shapes ensuring that similar looking birds are close to each other thus assisting in comparing different species. A bilingual index of all the birds listed by their common group names in English and Afrikaans, plus scientific name index.
