Ethiopia is one of
Africa’s top birding destinations, harbouring dramatic scenery, a wonderful
diversity of habitats, over 30 endemic species, and a number of other regional
specialities that cannot be easily seen anywhere else in the world. No
self-respecting world lister can afford not to go there!
This new book is a comprehensive site guide to the 50 best birding sites in the
country. Each site describes how to get there, what you can see there, and when
to visit. A number of full colour maps complement the site texts, and GPS
co-ordinates allow sites to be located with great accuracy. A section covering
the top 50 species gives details of how to see each of these special birds. The
book is completed with an annotated checklist of all the country’s birds and
more than 150 photographs of birds, habitats and even some of Ethiopia’s other
fauna and flora.
Claire Spottiswoode is
an acknowledged authority on Ethiopia’s birds and has undertaken much
research on its endemics. Merid Gabremichael is Ethiopia’s top bird tour
guide. Julian Francis has visited the region several times and is co-author of
an earlier guide to a selection of the best birding sites.
