Here is a book for all who want to know about birds -- the birds they see around them in Singapore as well as other parts of south-east Asia. Clear descriptions of over ninety species of birds are accompanied by field notes, serving as a useful guide for the keen bird-watcher. The Malay names of the birds have been included to help to identify them.
