This new larger edition is based on the recently updated fourth edition of the standard-format Sasol Birds of Southern Africa.

Newly designed plates for ease of use and comparison. More than 380 new improved illustrations. Illustrations with simplified labels, pinpointing key differentiating features. Updated distribution maps showing relative abundance and indicating resident or migrant status. Calendar bars showing species' occurrence and breeding periods, and sonograms depicting the calls of difficult-to-distinguish birds that have distinctive calls. The larger format allows for better appreciation and easier use of the plates.

"The Larger illustrated Guide to Birds of Southern Africa" by Sinclair, Hockey, Tarboton, and Ryan is a second and much larger edition of this already famous guide to birds in the lower regions of Africa, including Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and South Africa. The region includes birds around the Indian Ocean as well as The Atlantic Ocean. The huge compendium is the recognized Bird-Watchers guide par excellence. The hundreds of birds are classified by size, wingspan, weight, region, and beautiful full-color pictures help identify every bird and place it with its relatives. It is a magnanimous work! Excellent!!
