Books Info:

Birds of Thailand free pdf Thailand is the mecca of birding in Southeast Asia. It's convenient to get to and get around, and its birdlife is wondrously diverse, exotic, and plentiful. With "Birds of Thailand", Craig Robson and fourteen leading illustrators give us the most up-to-date, comprehensive, and concise field guide to this magnificent country's rich avifaunal heritage in recent years, covering the more than 950 species recorded as of early in the new millennium. Facing each of the 128 striking, full-color plates are species accounts accompanied by over 950 maps for each, illustrating precise distribution within Thailand. Illustrations and entries on a number of species recorded only quite recently are also included. The country's varied habitats assure something for every birder, from freshwater marshes to coastal areas, from fields and rice paddies to lush jungles and mangrove forests. In Thailand, one can delight in the brilliantly colored pittas, broadbills, and sunbirds- the deep, dazzling green of barbets, parrots, parakeets, and leafbirds- the aptly named frogmouths- the roosterlike resplendence of the (male) red junglefowl- the ruff, whose breeding male in full plumage sports a truly singular head- and much, much more. Birders and all ecologically minded travelers daydreaming of a voyage to this gem of a country will want the latest source of thorough information on its birdlife - in a highly portable, pithy, and vividly illustrated guide. What they will want is Craig Robson's "Birds of Thailand". This is a comprehensive field guide written specifically for this magnificent, bird-rich country. It contains 128 full-color plates by expert artists covering every major plumage variation, with juveniles also illustrated where notably distinct from males and females. This is an accurate, up-to-date, and concise text covering identification, voice, habitat and behavior, range, status, and breeding of all species and distinctive subspecies.
