A Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia
This fully updated edition of the award-winning A Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia includes more than 20 new species for the region which are recent discoveries, taxonomic 'splits' or have been recorded there for the first time. There are many new artworks and this edition has 16 more colour plates than the original, meaning fewer species per plate and therefore larger images of each species. The text has also been meticulously updated to take in the latest information on each species. The vast diversity of South-East Asian birdlife attracts increasing numbers of birdwatchers each year. This comprehensive field guide to the region covers all of the 1,300 species recorded there and each has been fully illustrated. Covering Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Peninsular Malaysia, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, this unique and indispensable guide covers in detail the identification, voice, breeding, status, habitat and distribution of all the species and distinctive subspecies of the region.
