The John Voelcker Bird Book Fund is proud to publish this guide, which complements the large handbook tome Roberts Birds of Southern Africa VII. This is the first regional field guide on the continent of Africa to display multi-coloured distribution maps.
The breeding grids that are conveniently placed below the distribution maps show the full breeding season, and peak breeding for all species.
This is the first comprehensive field guide in southern Africa that gives information on food and breeding strategies. Included, too, are the meanings (etymology) of scientific names and colloquial names in 13 languages.
This information, together with 166 annotated plates illustrated by seven of southern Africa’s finest bird artists, makes this guide essential for both beginners and experts in the field of ornithology.
