More an avifauna than a field guide, this book provides a complete systematic list with distribution (with maps), range and habitat preferences for all recorded species. In addition, there are new illustrations of species, a gazetteer of place names, and indices of generic and specific names. Illustrated with 49 color plates of individual species by the author, range maps and six black & white photographic plates of habitats.
