This completely rewritten fifth edition brings the text of this book fully up to date. Illustrating 891 species of birds in full colour, it incorporates a vast amount of new information as well as a number of special new features. These include: two colour plates of species new to the Southern African list; many new plates by Geoff Lockwood and Kenneth Newman, painted especially for this edition; extended and updated text sections on identification; several dichotomous keys and other aids to bird identification for beginners; new enlarged distribution maps in colour, showing at a glance whether a bird is resident (green), breeding migrant (blue), or nonbreeding migrant (yellow); sonograms of most vocalizations to aid interpretations of birdcalls, all fully explained in the introduction; rainfall and vegetation maps in colour; abbreviated text references to important works published on particular species or families of birds.
