About this title


The Birds of Africa is the first handbook to describe all the birds of the African continent in one series. These volumes have received worldwide acclaim for their clear, concise presentation of material and the excellent quality of the color plates, which vividly illustrate the African avifauna. The third volume completes the coverage of the non-passerine families, and marks the halfway point in realizing the late Leslie Brown's dream of a new African bird handbook. As in Volume 2, invited experts thoroughly describe each species under a comprehensive set of headings.

From the Back Cover:

By far the most authoritative and comprehensive work ever published on the birds of Africa. The Editors and artists have worked closely with the 16 authors of this volume - all internationally acknowledged experts on their bird families - to produce encyclopaedic accounts of each species.
This volume completes the non-passerines, dealing with all species occurring on the continent - residents and visitors alike - in the following familes: parrots, turacos, cuckoos, owls, nightjars, swifts, colies, kingfishers and their allies, and woodpeckers and their allies. All are illustrated, and all known biological information is included. The passerines (songbirds) will be covered in four forthcoming volumes, already in preparation.
