Octavo, paperback, 544 pp. colour photographs, maps.
A newly revised edition of the comprehensive photographic guide to the birds of Indonesia. Because of its vast size and geographical location, Indonesia has the world's most diverse avifauna. It boasts of more than 1,600 species--of which 235 species are only found in Indonesia, making it the world's number one travel destination for bird-watching. This book covers a total of 912 species, including most of the non-migratory and endemic species that are seen only in Indonesia. A photograph and distribution map is given for each bird. Many new photographs appear in this volume for the first time and have been carefully selected to show the important characteristics of each bird. The concise text provides vital information, and an index of common names is included at the back of the book.
