9780121373030: The Birds of Africa, Volume III: Parrots to Woodpeckers: v. 3


By far the most authoritative and comprehensive work ever published on the birds of Africa. The Editors and artists have worked closely with the 16 authors of this volume--all internationally acknowledged experts on their bird families--to produce encyclopaedic accounts of each species.


This volume completes the non-passerines, dealing with all species occurring on the continent--residents and visitors alike--in the following families: parrots, turacos, cuckoos, owls, nightjars, swifts, colies, kingfishers and their allies, and woodpeckers and their allies. All are illustrated, and all known biological information is included. The passerines (songbirds) are covered in the later four volumes.

Review:

"This is the latest volume of the splendid series, and more than keeps up with the excellent standard of the previous two volumes. . . . [It is] another masterpiece. Altogether editors, authors, artists and publishers must be warmly congratulated on producing a real ornithologist's feast. I suggest we all tuck in." --Michael Rands, Ornithological Society of the Middle East Bulletin
