about this item

A compact, easy-to-use bird identification guide for any nature watcher on a visit to Sri Lanka, a rich and satisfying destination for watching birds, with more than 430 species identified on the island. A total of 252 species are described here in detail, from the Black-rumped Flameback to the Ceylon Blue Magpie. All of these birds are clearly illustrated in a collection of specially commissioned color photographs. With almost three hundred full-color photographs, easy-to-use thumbnail family silhouettes, a regional distribution map, and handy tips on the best birding localities.

Illustrated with clear color photography and brief but authoritative descriptions, the Pocket Photo Guides highlight the species of birds and animals from each region that the traveler is most likely to see, as well as those that are genuinely endemic (only to be seen in that country or region) or special rarities. The genuine pocket size allow the books to be carried around on trips and excursions and will take up minimal rucksack and suitcase space.
