This is the first field guide devoted entirely to the birds of Pakistan. Compact yet comprehensive, it is the perfect companion for birders and ornithologists who need a portable tool to assist them in the accurate identification of birds in the field. For easy reference, the descriptive text and map on each bird species appears on the page facing that bird’s illustration. Superb color plates depict hundreds of birds found in Pakistan, and the text offers identification, voice, habitat, range, distribution, and status information for each. The guide also provides summaries of the key characteristics of each bird family, advice on good birdwatching areas, and much more.
