new field guide is based on the authors’ groundbreaking Birds of the Indian
Subcontinent (1998) and covers all the bird species found in India, Pakistian,
Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and the Maldives. The plates face the
descriptions and maps for quick at-a-glance reference. Many of the plates have
been repainted for this edition and a number of new species added. This guide
also provides tables, summarising identification features of particularly
difficult groups such as nightjars, warblers and rosefinches.
