This highly illustrated, comprehensive & easy to use volume is a guide to a unique avifauna, the birds of the Seychelles & outlying islands in the Western Indian Ocean. The Seychelles remains one of the least disturbed island groups, & one of the last to be studied by ornithologists. Easy species identification & the tameness of the birds -- some of them among the rarest in the world -- combine to make bird-watching in the Seychelles rewarding for the novice bird-watcher & fascinating for the ornithologist. In addition to being able to put a name to a bird, this book also provides information on how the birds live, what they feed, when they breed & why there are so many great rarities. 1105 color illustrations, & 362 maps.
