9780199639434: A Field Guide to the Birds of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore

This new edition is the most comprehensive field guide to the birds of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore, covering all 673 species known to occur in the region. The birds are illustrated in a series of 74 stunning full-colour plates, painted for this book by Alan Pearson, an artist with considerable first-hand experience of the region. The plates illustrate the various plumage variations for each bird, and show the birds perched and also in flight, where relevant to their identification. The text, written and revised by Allen Jeyarajasingam, is accessible to experienced ornithologists and beginners alike, and highlights the important identification features such as plumage variations, size, calls and songs, range, distribution, and status for every species. Introductory sections describe the region and highlight some of the best sites for watching the abundant avifauna.

The beautiful, precise plates and clearly-written text make this book a must-have for all birdwatchers travelling to the region.

About the Author:


Allen Jeyarajasingam was born in Kuala Lumpur in August 1959 and has been interested in natural history since he was a child. He has contributed numerous articles and papers in nature magazines and journals in Malaysia and abroad. Allen's expertise has been in demand for consultancy work on surveys and other conservation projects in Malaysia. He has also travelled to Singapore, Japan, Mauritius, Kenya, the UK, and Australia in pursuit of birds. He is an active member of the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) and sits on the Bird Conservation Council of the society. He served as chairman of the council from 1999 - 2002 and was also chairman of the Records Committee from 1998 - 2005. He is one of the editors of the Council's Bimonthly Bulletin "SUARA ENGGANG" (Voice of the Hornbill). He has co-authored "BIRDS - A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore", published by Sun Tree Publishing (Singapore) in 1993.

Alan Pearson is a secondary school teacher and artist with several publications to his credit.
