Birds of Kruger National Park Paperback / softback

Part of the Wildlife Explorer Guides series

Description

South Africa's Kruger National Park is one of the largest and most iconic conservation areas in Africa.

Habitats range from wide-open savannah and rugged thornveld to broadleaved mopani woodland.

This microhabitat variation gives Kruger a phenomenal diversity of some 520 bird species, half of which are resident.

From Africa's most extraordinary eagles, like the scarlet-faced Bateleur, to electric-colored glossy-starlings and jewel-like finches, Kruger offers an avian celebration of form and color.

It is also a crucial conservation area, supporting South Africa's largest viable populations of vultures, eagles, and large terrestrial birds. This field guide offers a unique window into the world of Kruger's birds.

More than 500 stunning color photographs illustrate the 259 most frequently encountered species, and a habitat-based approach assists in identification.

The authoritative text provides key information about identification, habitat, behavior, biology, and conservation.

The guide contains information likely to be new to even the most experienced birders, but is written in a nontechnical style that makes it accessible to anyone. * An essential guide to Kruger's birds* Perfect for new and experienced birders alike* Small, portable format ideal for field use* Unique attractive layout with more than 500 stunning color photographs* Covers the 259 most frequently seen species* Uses a habitat-based approach to aid identification* Authoritative and accessible text provides key information about identification, behavior, biology, and conservation Distributed by Princeton University Press
