About this item

Southeast Asia has a vast diversity of birdlife, comprising roughly one fifth of the world’s 10,000 living species, and of which over 850 are endemic, making the region a richly rewarding destination for birdwatchers. This fully illustrated guide describes the 100 best sites for viewing both common and rare species. Divided into the four biodiversity hotspots of Indo-Burma; Sundaland; Philippines and Wallacea, the book covers sites in Myanmar, Thailand, Lao PDR, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia, the Philippines and Timor Leste.

Alongside a map of each area, detailed descriptions of each site cover the type of terrain and specific spots at which certain species are likely to be encountered. Other sections cover access and possible accommodation, as well as important indicators to conservation issues. A fact file for each site lists the nearest town; the type of habitat; key lowland, montane and winter species to be seen as well as other wildlife specialities, and the best time to visit. The book is edited by Yong Ding Li and Low Bing Wen who have brought together a team of contributors, each with in-depth experience of the sites presented.
