FIELDGUIDE TO SHOREBIRDS OF SOUTH AFRICA

FIELDGUIDE TO SHOREBIRDS OF SOUTH AFRICA

Written by two of BirdLife Port Natal’s well-known members, Roy Cowgill and Steve Davis, this unique new guide will help identify the more common waders (shorebirds) in South Africa and will appeal to both experienced birders as well as novices.

Using classification, characteristics and behaviour, and based on an 8-point identification framework, the reader is guided through the stages of identification of shorebirds. The book also gives visual clues to both plovers and sandpipers through silhouettes and plumage patterns showing their relative size as a key to identification, as well as photos with key species characteristics. Also included are descriptions of habitats, tables showing seasonality, abundance, and distribution.

The book is available at CNA, Exclusive Books, Bargain Books, or can be ordered on-line from the Publishers, Jacana, by following the link:
