Dazzling in their beauty, many of the 123 species of kingfisher, bee-eater and roller are very poorly known. This reference provides a review of the group showing every species, all the main races and most sex and age variations. Text and plates are closely co-ordinated with emphasis on behaviour, field characters and identifcation. Colour maps showing breeding and wintering ranges are also included.

"For persons not familiar with the kingfisher, bee-eater, and roller families, and who want to learn more about these birds, this book is an eye-opener, and I can hardly imagine a more attractive introduction to them."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
"Fry, Fry, and Harris have produced a highly useful, beautifully illustrated summary of knowledge of three groups of birds. This is one of the many new 'family' books that many ornithologists will want for their own libraries, and any institutional library used by ornithologists should obtain a copy."--The Auk
"This book is a must for every serious birdwatcher.... It is an essential reference for anyone who is planning a trip to a hot-spot for these birds, or people who want to rekindle the memories of a Kenyan safari."--Birdwatching
