Revealing fascinating insights into the mysterious lives of birds native to the mother continent, this remarkable guide exhibits the many vibrantly colourful species found in the South African bush. Providing an in-depth discourse on all aspects of bird life-detailing their myriad forms, survival strategies in a harsh landscape, breeding and feeding behaviours, movements, migrations, preferred habitat, unique behavioural patterns, and vocalisations-this comprehensive manual also expertly advises on how to easily and accurately identify each individual species. Populated with more than 900 brilliantly vivid photographs and exhaustively researched to fill the gap in existing literature and field guides, this essential reference will delight nature lovers, tourists, birdwatchers, and bush lovers alike.
The cover has some scratching to both front and back and there is bumping to all four corners and the top and bottom of the spine, as would be expected with a soft cover book.The top front corner of the cover is creased and beginning to delaminate. The spine is creased through opening but the binding is sound. There is a previous owner's signature on the first page but otherwise the pages are all clean and unmarked. Please be aware the book weighs 1.75 kg.
