This comprehensive new field guide is an excellent addition to the world-renowned series - the ultimate reference book for travelling birdwatchers.

Every species of bird you might encounter in the region is featured, apart from non-established introductions. This includes coverage of China (south of the line used to define the Palearctic), Hainan (treated separately from SE China), Taiwan, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore and the Coco Islands. As many of the major subspecies as possible are also included.

Beautiful artwork depicts their breeding plumage, and non-breeding plumage when it differs significantly. The accompanying text concentrates on the specific characteristics and appearance of each species that allow identification in the field, including voice and distribution maps.

Review quote

Praise for Norman Arlott:

`A very attractive portable guide [...] stunningly attractive plates [...] beautifully crafted, neat and crisp paintings' Birdwatch magazine

`It's only small, but my goodness it makes your mouth water. Just look at all those babblers and warblers. It's like a big box of sweeties. A perfect present for a fellow bird-nut. Or then again, you could treat yourself.'
Rob Innes, Cage & Aviary Birds

`This book is worth buying for the magnificent artwork alone.' Eric Brown, Kentish Times
