Species accounts include English and Latin names, brief description, length, wingspan, sexes similar, adult, male, female, juvenile; voice, behaviors, habitat, status, key sites and similar species, with a color range map and at least one if not multiple color photos per species. Families or groups of families have brief introductions. The book also includes a list of the best sites in the region for birdwatching with concise descriptions.
