520 |a South Africa's Kruger National Park is one of the largest and most iconic conservation areas in Africa. Habitats range from wide-open savannah and rugged thornveld to broadleaved mopani woodland. This microhabitat variation gives Kruger a phenomenal diversity of some 520 bird species, half of which are resident. From Africa's most extraordinary eagles, like the scarlet-faced Bateleur, to electric-colored glossy-starlings and jewel-like finches, Kruger offers an avian celebration of form and color. It is also a crucial conservation area, supporting South Africa's largest viable populations of vultures, eagles, and large terrestrial birds. This field guide offers a unique window into the world of Kruger's birds. More than 400 stunning color photographs illustrate the 250 most frequently encountered species, and a habitat-based approach assists in identification. The authoritative text provides key information about identification, habitat, behavior, biology, and conservation. The guide contains information likely to be new to even the most experienced birders, but is written in a nontechnical style that makes it accessible to anyone. An essential guide to Kruger's birdsPerfect for new and experienced birders alikeSmall, portable format ideal for field useUnique attractive layout with more than 400 stunning color photographsCovers the 250 most frequently seen speciesUses a habitat-based approach to aid identificationAuthoritative and accessible text provides key information about identification, behavior, biology, and conservationDistributed by Princeton University Press.
