For over 50 years The Book of Indian Birds has been a close companion of both amateur bird-watching enthusiasts and seasoned ornithologists in India. This much-awaited new edition covers 538 species and includes the extensive changes in the scientific and common bird names that have taken place since the last revision in 1996, providing uniformity and allowing birdwatchers to communicate more easily with one another while exchanging their observations. Extensively illustrated, the book remains an indispensable field guide for everyone who wishes to enjoy the rich and varied bird life of India.

About the Author:


The late Salim Ali was one of the world's greatest ornithologists.

Review:


"The present work is a concise guide to the varied birdlife of [India]. It is small enough o handle in the field with ample color plates and an authoritative text that will help identify most of the species encountered. If India is in your dreams then this timely book will help the birding traveler. --Indiana Audubon Quarterly, Charles E. Keller

Book Description Oxford University Press, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 5th or later edition. This much-awaited revised edition includes the extensive changes in the scientific and common bird names that have taken place since the last revision in 1996. Following the publication, in 2001, of the list of Standardized Common and Scientific Names of the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent in the Buceros 6 (1), the common and scientific names have been modified based on this list. It is expected that this will provide uniformity in the names used throughout the Subcontinent and outside, and help birdwatchers to communicate better while exchanging their observations. The Alternate Common Names given in the earlier edition have been removed. The Index of common names of species, giving plate and serial numbers, has been replaced with separate Indexes of Scientific and Common names according to page numbers. Minor errors that were overlooked in the earlier edition have also been rectified. Printed Pages: 466. Bookseller Inventory # 16282

Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2003. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Thirteenth Edition. This much-awaited revised edition includes the extensive changes in the scientific and common bird names that have taken place since the last revision in 1996. Following the publication, in 2001, of the list of Standardized Common and Scientific Names of the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent in the Buceros 6 (1), the common and scientific names have been modified based on this list. It is expected that this will provide uniformity in the names used throughout the Subcontinent and outside, and help birdwatchers to communicate better while exchanging their observations. The Alternate Common Names given in the earlier edition have been removed. The Index of common names of species, giving plate and serial numbers, has been replaced with separate Indexes of Scientific and Common names according to page numbers. Minor errors that were overlooked in the earlier edition have also been rectified. Dr. Salim Ali last revised and enlarged the BOOK OF INDIAN BIRDS in 1979 when the eleventh edition was published. This edition described and illustrated 296 species, and was last published in 1992. Thereafter, it was decided that the Book should be enlarged to cover the common and interesting birds of all biogeographic zones in India to make the book a useful field guide for the Subcontinent. This revised and enlarged edition of the book is being brought out to commemorate the centenary of Dr. Salim Ali and his seminal contribution to the popularisation of the study of birds in India, which began with the publication of the 1st edition of the BOOK OF INDIAN BIRDS fifty-four years ago, in 1941. The edition covers 538 species, the descriptions of which have been compiled from Dr. Salim Ali s writings to maintain the same style and format. The illustrations are new and have been specially prepared for this edition by the noted bird artist Carl D Silva except for one plate on the mynas which was prepared by Dr. Salim Ali s favourite bird illustrator Mr. J. P. Irani. The 538 species have been accommodated in 64 plates. Each of the species illustrated in the plates has been provided with brief captions giving status, whether resident or migratory, size and form, key identification characters, habitat and distribution. The book ends, as did the earlier editions, with Dr. Salim Ali s notes on nesting, migration, bird watching, etc. The book remains a guide to the beginner and a handy reference for the serious amateur as well as for the professional ornithologists.
