Review:

Praise for Ber van Perlo:

‘Very easy to flick through and get a quick impression of what may be unfamiliar families.’ Birdwatch magazine

‘I found the illustrations and text to be skillfully produced and accurate...the ideal guide to take on your travels.’ British Ornithologists’ Union

About the Author:

Ber van Perlo has written and illustrated numerous books, including the highly successful Birds of Southern Africa. He studied garden and landscape architecture at the Agricultural University of Wageningen in the Netherlands before working as a geographer and physical planner with the National Forestry Service of the Netherlands. During a holiday in Kenya in 1982 he discovered that no field guide existed which depicted all bird species of the area. He began to produce field guides for various regions of Africa, eventually extending to the Indian Subcontinent and Middle and Southern America.
