Borrow, Nik and Ron Demey.

Birds of Western Africa (Helm, 2001) was the first single-volume guide to cover all the species of this region, which comprises 23 countries from Senegal and southern Mauritania east to Chad and the Central African Republic, and south to Congo.  Fully updated, this new edition uses all of the plates from the large format Birds of Western Africa, with a concise, authoritative text on facing pages, to create a conveniently-sized, lightweight field reference covering all 1300 species found in the region. Colour distribution maps for each species have now been placed on the text pages for easy reference. A number of new images have been painted for this second edition and several of the illustrations have been replaced. This major guide will enable birders to identify any species found in any of the countries covered.
