Fully revised, Birds of Africa south of the Sahara provides unrivalled coverage of African birds in a single volume, and is the first book to describe and illustrate all of the birds found in Africa south of the Sahara Desert (the Afrotropic Region), including Socotra, Pemba and islands in the Gulf of Guinea. Over 2 500 colour photographs show age and sex plumage variations, perched and in-flight birds, and colour morphs where relevant. Text – by Africa's top birding authors – forcuses on identification, call, habitat and status, breeding details and diet. Colour-coded distribution maps show resident and migratory status and bird density. Annual calendar bars indicate, at a glace, w hen species are present and when they breed. Despite its exceptional coverage, this guide is compact enough to use in the field, and follows the standard field guide format, with texts and range maps appearing opposite the colour plates.
