Review:

"The bird you see in the field is often exactly what you find in the book, and equally clear is its habitat, such as a thorny acacia branch or a forest floor littered with dead leaves. Kennedy also avoids using intimidating jargon to describe bird species, opting instead to keep the tone of his descriptions light hearted while still being informative. . . . The overwhelming majority of photographs are of exceptionally high quality."---Derek Kverno, Birding in Tanzania

"Essential book if you are heading for the Serengeti. . . . Excellent."---Derek Moore, Derek Bird Brain

"Birds of the Serengeti: And Ngorongoro Conservation Area by Adam Scott Kennedy may be the best birding book available covering the general safari region for northwestern Tanzania and southern Kenya. Filled with firsthand accounts, excellent photographs, and broken down into chapters by habitats, Birds of the Serengeti: And Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the guidebook for the broader non-scientific community."---Gabriel Thoumi, MongaBay.com

"The amateur birder will find this a helpful book to have in hand while in Tanzania."--Library Journal

"[A] great companion to existing field guides to the region, so certainly earns its place in my bag."---Martin Sullivan, BTO News

"[A]n attractive and handy layout, and informative and accessible text that discusses interesting behaviors and provides insights into species background. Rich in detail, this indispensable volume uses a habitat-based approach, making it simple for everyone--from the novice to the experienced birdwatcher--to locate diverse birds in this fascinating area of the world."--BASE

"I'd like to praise the overall visual effect of the Birds of the Serengeti. The overwhelming majority of photographs are of exceptionally high quality, undoubtedly shot with the finest equipment, but also indicative of a high level of skill."--Birding Tanzania Blog

"These two guides are keys to prepare you for your journey, whether it is an actual safari or an imaginary one from the comfort of your home."---Dan R. Kunkle, Wildlife Activist

"This field guide is 'aimed at all levels of birding ability' and it is definitely suitable for novice birders and for those on a safari primarily for mammals and larger wildlife. The . . . quality of the photographs and text would make it a fine addition to field naturalist's library with an interest in East Africa."---Robert F. Foster, Canadian Field Naturalist

"The result of this innovative approach is superb. It guides the layman on where to look for birds and what to look for. I wish there was such a field guide for every Important Bird Area (IBA) in East Africa!"---Fleur Ng'weno, Scopus
