This definitive field guide is a perfect addition to every bird enthusiast’s library. It covers over 450 bird species found in Delhi and its surrounding areas. These range from the most common to the rarest of the rare. The field guide is divided into handy sections, describing each species in detail, accompanied by photographs, annotations and key diagnostic features. Some bird profiles also include behavioral traits to help the birders distinguish the species. Special feature spreads outline key birding hotspots across the city and the surrounding areas. Two key selling points of this book are two exclusive chapters written by renowned ornithologists Dr Martin Kelsey OBE and Bill Harvey. Dr Kelsey, a warblers expert and Harvey, an authority on pipits, outline the key features on these birds -- traditionally very difficult to distinguish, making it easy for all birders to tell apart these almost identical avians.
