Having been in Tanzania and seen many different birds, I wanted to identify some of the photos and get the names down. Images of African birds on the Internet don't often post names so that way of making identification failed me. I got this book from the library and although it did not have pictures of all the birds we saw,. it did have many and a lot of good information about habitate and habits. I recommend it!
