Birds of Western Africa : 2nd Edition, Paperback / softback Book

Birds of Western Africa : 2nd Edition Paperback / softback

Part of the Helm Field Guides series


Birds of Western Africa (Helm, 2001) was the first single-volume guide to cover all the species of this region, which comprises 23 countries from Senegal and southern Mauritania east to Chad and the Central African Republic, and south to Congo.

This new edition 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 1300 species found in the region.

The book also has updated colour distribution maps for each species placed on the text pages for the first time.

A number of new images have been painted for this new edition and several of the illustrations have been replaced.

This major new guide will enable birders to identify any species found in any of the countries covered.
