For ornithologists, natural history enthusiasts, environmentalists, and amateur birdwatchers, this revised edition of a 1983 book is essential as the only single-volume guide available of birds in India. Unlike similar books, which only cover one region and even then only a small portion of species in their area, this volume includes all the bird species found in the Indian subcontinent, shown in over 100 color plates from noted American bird painter John Henry Dick. The plates have been arranged by family in systematic order, and the author provides concise information concerning status, size, habitat, and distribution.
