This is by far the most authoritative and comprehensive work ever published on the birds of Africa. The Editors and artists have worked closely with the 16 authors of this volume - all internationally acknowledged experts on their bird families - to produce encyclopaedic accounts of each species. This volume completes the non-passerines, dealing with all species occurring on the continent - residents and visitors alike - in the following families: parrots, turacos, cuckoos, owls, nightjars, swifts, colies, kingfishers and their allies, and woodpeckers and their allies. All are illustrated, and all known biological information is included. The passerines (songbirds) will be covered in four forthcoming volumes, already in preparation.

Review quote

This is the latest volume of the splendid series, and more than keeps up with the excellent standard of the previous two volumes... [It is] another masterpiece. Altogether editors, authors, artists and publishers must be warmly congratulated on producing a real ornithologist's feast. I suggest we all tuck in. -- Michael Rands Ornithological Society of the Middle East Bulletin
