=A guide with illustrations or photographs for identification
This pocket-sized guide to the Birds of Namibia has been designed primarily for use in the field. It features some 340 of the region's birds, particularly those most frequently seen, but including some that are sought after by birders. Concise text for each species gives key ID pointers in italics, and describes their call and favored habitat. Accounts are accompanied by color photographs of all the birds - selected to show their most obvious identifying features; where there is a marked difference, for example, between the sexes or between breeding and non-breeding plumage, more than one photograph has been included. Distribution maps are provided for all featured species. Light and handy for use in the field, this guide will give birders an excellent introduction to Namibia's bird life.
