Field Guide to the Birds of Western Africa, Paperback

Field Guide to the Birds of Western Africa Paperback

Illustrated by Nik Borrow

Part of the Helm Field Guides series


This new field guide uses all of the plates from Birds of Western Africa, with a concise, authoritative text on facing pages, to create a conveniently-sized, lightweight field reference covering all 1285 species found in the region.

The book also has an updated colour distribution map for each species, conveniently placed on interleaved pages within the colour plates.

A number of new images have been painted for this new field guide and several of the plates have been replaced.

This is the first comprehensive field guide to cover the birds of this exciting region, and will enable birders to identify any species found in any of the countries covered.

Birds of Western Africa (Helm, 2001) was the first single-volume guide to cover all species of this region, which comprises all countries from Senegal and southern Mauritania east to Chad and the Central African Republic and south to Congo.
