The Book of Indian Birds , Salim Ali

£14.99

Product description

For nearly fifty years "The Book of Indian Birds" has been a close companion of the recently inducted bird-watching enthusiast as well as of the seasoned ornithologist in India. This twelfth edition is revised, but retains Dr Salim Ali's original text while describing and illustrating 240 additional species. Colour prints are used in place of the black-and-white photographs of earlier editions. The book now illustrates in colour, and succinctly describes the habits and habitats of 538 birds of the plains and foothills, and of the wetlands and sea-coast. The sequence of Orders and Families has been rearranged to facilitate reference to current ornithological literature. The book remains an indispensable field guide for everyone who wishes to enjoy the rich and varied bird life of the country. Very Good Condition
