Universally recognized as by far the most authoritative and comprehensive work ever published on the birds of Africa, Volume V is the second of four dealing with the Passerine birds of the continent. The families treated fall into the following groups: thrushes, Old World warblers, Old World flycatchers, monarch flycatchers wattle-eyes and puffback flycatchers. The editors and artists have worked closely with nine other authors--all acknowledged experts on their bird families--to produce a superb reference in which encyclopaedic texts on every species are complemented by accurate and detailed paintings and drawings of the birds themselves. Full bibliographies, acoustic references and indexes complete this marvelous work of reference. Features: * Continues the high quality of this well-regarded series * Provides the only comprehensive handbook treatment of African birds
