This work concludes noted ornithologist Tom Roberts' magnificent survey of the birds of Pakistan. Together with Volume 1, the work covers 660 species, offering detailed descriptions of each, supported by 47 full-page plates and over 100 black and white illustrations drawn by the author. Distribution maps of over 570 species detail wintering or breeding status, and voice descriptions are drawn from the author's own extensive collection of bird recordings made in Pakistan during his 34 years of residence in that country. Each volume contains a bibliography and index. Amateur and professional ornithologists alike will appreciate this unique work of art and scholarship.

World-famous ornithologist, recipient of President of WWF International Award for Conservation Merit, 1982.Review:
'The information contained again combines a thorough research of the literature with a wealth of personal observations gained from the author's long residence in the country. The style is readable yet authoritative, demonstrating a deep understanding of the birds of this comparatively
neglected region ... a monumental work ... The two volumes will undoubtedly remain the standard reference on the birds of pakistan for many years and no-one with a serious interest in the region should be without them.'
Nigel Redman, British Birds, Volume 86, No. 4, April 1993
'This is the first complete account of the avifauna of Pakistan - fascinatingly written, well illustrated, and expertly mapped - covering 660 species. And it is all the work of one man, Tom Roberts, who has spent most of his adult life in the country.
It is an incredible achievement, a useful reference book and a good read (not at all dry or telegrammitic, as many bird manuals are)...
Perhaps this authoritative two-volume study will encourage the Pakistan government to enforce protection of their country's rarer species.'
Peter Holt, Weekly Gulf Times
'The second volume of Tom Roberts' The Birds of Pakistan fully lives up to the high standards set by the first. The format and style are identical with the earlier volume, and the attention to detail remains meticulous. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone with an interest in South Asian
