A photographic guide to birds of India and Nepal.Artist/Author: Grewal, Bikram.
This photographic guide deals with the basics of bird identification in India and Nepal by presenting those species that are most likely to be seen in accessible habitats throughout the region. The book is aimed directly at field identification. For those species that are sexually dimorphic, have both breeding and non-breeding plumages, or in which the juvenile plumage differs markedly from that of the adult, more than one photograph has been included. Thumbnail silhouettes aid the reader in quickly locating the correct group of birds, and for each species account a map shows the bird’s distribution.
