Chris Feare has studied birds and their interactions with man for thirty years, and began research on starlings in 1974. He has traveled widely in search of starlings and to study bird pest problems, and currently runs his own consultancy. He is a Visiting Professor at Leeds University. The seed of this book was sown during the writing of his 1984 monograph, The Starling, and the project gained momentum when he and Adrian Craig met by chance while examining starlings in the Natural History Museum at Tring, Hertfordshire. Adrian Craig started research on African starlings at Rhodes University (South Africa) in 1980. Bishopbirds were the subject of his MSc and PhD theses at, respectively, the University of Cape Town and the University of Natal. He is currently Associate Professor in Zoology at Rhodes University. He has also served on the council of BirdLife South Africa, and edited its journal, Ostrich, for twelve years.Review:
"A must if you need a good identification guide to these birds... The colour plates are excellent, as are the distribution maps and write-ups." Cage & Aviary Birds (February 2007)
