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 familes: 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.
