9780002199377: Birds of Eastern Africa (Illustrated Checklist) (Collins Illustrated Checklist)

East Africa is one of the only places in the world where it is possible to see over 200 species of bird in one day. This richness has attracted bird watchers from the four corners of the world and has made Kenya and Tanzania the most popular wildlife tourist spots in the world. This book illustrates and describes every species of bird found in the area. The text details what kind of habitat the birds are found in, key identification features and notes on the calls and songs of each species. Maps are also included for every species to show where the species occurs in the area.

Review:

". . . this handy volume is certain to become as essential as binoculars." --David Tomlinson, New Scientist

"The books are compact, convenient guides for birders and scientists interested in identifying birds while visiting the regions. Their small, lightweight sizes make for easy packing and carrying in the back pocket while trudging around the countryside. They are the perfect alternative to the larger guides that are too large for travelling and often have more information than is necessary for field identification." --Condor
