The Larger illustrated Guide to Birds of Southern Africa by Sinclair, Hockey, Tarboton, and Ryan is a second and much larger edition of this already famous guide to birds in the lower regions of Africa, including Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and South Africa. The region includes birds around the Indian Ocean as well as The Atlantic Ocean. The huge compendium is the recognized Bird-Watchers guide par excellence. The hundreds of birds are classified by size, wingspan, weight, region, and beautiful full-color pictures help identify every bird and place it with its relatives. It is a magnanimous work! Excellent!! (Bonnie Neely, Amazon top reviewer, Real Travel Adventures)
