Pretty good field guide to the region, and my constant companion for the last 3 weeks. Descriptions and illustrations are good, and every species has a range map. Most annoying thing about this guide is that the maps are usually on separate pages from the plates, so you end up doing a lot of "ok, page 34, wait, what was the plate number? *flip back* oh 25 *flip forward*" Ordering is a bit frustrating too, with waders being split up and passerine-like birds like the cuckoos separated from true passerines. Durable binding, good paper.

Eliszard "For Captain Aubrey, as for the rest of brute creation, there were only two kinds of birds, the edible and the inedible."


Ken-ichi Hahaha, someone should publish Jack Aubrey's Guide to the Birds of Everywhere.
