Abstract:

"The Birds of East Africa is the field guide to a spectacular region for birding. Covering all the resident, migrant and vagrant birds of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi it describes a remarkable 1388 species. Three experienced artists have painstakingly prepared 287 new plates showing 3400 images illustrating all the plumages and major races likely to be encountered. Set opposite the plates are concise descriptive accounts describing identification, status, range, habits and voice, and range maps for each species. Introductory sections provide notes on how to use the species accounts, the nomenclature adopted, conservation issues, where to send records, and maps of protected and other important bird areas."--BOOK JACKET.
