The birds of Eastern Africa field guideBirds of Eastern Africa by Ber Van Perlo

Eastern Africa is becoming an increasingly popular destination for people who want to see first-hand the abundant widlife of this vast continent.

‘Birds of Eastern Africa’ is the only field guide to feature over 450 species found in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia and Somalia (including Socotra Island).

Including full colour illustrations of each bird, key features on habitat, songs and calls, and distribution maps for each species, this guide contains all the information needed to quickly identify the birds found in this vast region.

Comprehensive and easy-to-use, this book is a must for all those visiting the region.

I was most happy to be able to use the Collin's Birds guide in Ethiopia. The drawings are good, , the result is a relatively light compact guide. Moreover what is really good is the presence of a map per bird species, and totally fantastic is that the guide covers Ethiopia, what is not the case with other guides on East Africa.
