Review:

"This book is the field guide for the birds of the Indian Subcontinent.... Most highly recommended."--Wildlife Activist

"Exactly what was needed. The authors have done a wonderful job of balancing the needs of information and space."--Bird Watcher's Digest

"Achieve[s] the high standards one expects from Princeton University Press field guides. Excellent for casual bird enthusiasts and serious birders making short visits to the regions covered."--Condor

"The amazing variety of colorful species represented in this field guide are a feast for the mind and the eye, even if one is not planning on boarding the next plane for a birding trip to the subcontinent."--Dorothy Borders, Backyard Birder blog

"A guide to India has a lot of ground to cover, and with a growing cadre of local birders as part of an increasing middle class in the country, it's as apt to be used as extensively by Indians as by visitors to India, which makes it doubly important that it's right. . . . Both local and visiting birders have a lot to look forward to in this guide, but you'd expect nothing less from Princeton University Press. There are only a few options for those wishing to bird India, they're certainly fortunate that the one that's available is of such uniformly high quality."--Nate Swick, Drinking Bird blog

"The quality of the color plates and the amount of detailed information packed into this relatively compact field guide make this a top title for anyone interested in birds of the Indian Subcontinent and a must for any birder traveling to the region. I give Birds of India 4.5 Goldfinches out of 5."--Amy Evenstad, Magnificent Frigatebird blog

"I would recommend Birds of India: Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives for any birders who live in or will be traveling to visit India or one of its neighbors."--John Beetham, A DC Birding Blog

"Without a doubt, this user-friendly guide is a must for anyone heading to the Indian subcontinent or for those who simply want to add another remarkable field guide to their library. My next backpacking trip will hopefully be the Indian subcontinent and the Birds of India will certainly be the first item packed."--Ethan Kistler, Nomadic Birder blog

"What a beautiful book. Since I was a child, reading Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book, I have wanted to go to India. I haven't made it yet, but if I ever get to go, this book will be in my suitcase, even if something else has to be left out."--Penny Miller, A Charm of Finches blog

"Even if you have the first edition of the Birds of India: Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives, you will benefit enormously from this second edition. . . . Comprehensive and authoritative, this is an indispensable guide for anyone birding anywhere in the Indian Subcontinent."--Frank Lambert, Birder's Library blog

"This latest book on the birds of India becomes the one to own and the one use in the field, and although no one will find themselves alone in India, I can heartily recommend Birds Of India as a worthy companion for any birder planning to visit there, or indeed any part of the Indian subcontinent. It will also follow someone around by fitting into a rucksack or a large pocket."--Another Bird Blog

"The best field guide to the birds of the Indian subcontinent is now even better. . . . I thoroughly recommend this and can't wait to get back to the sub-continent for it to help me fill some gaps in my lists!"--Fatbirder

"Fantastic and thorough."--Eddie Callaway, Birdfreak
