Introduction[PDF] pdf-icon

Birds of the Horn of Africa is widely regarded as the best field guide to the more than 1,000 species of resident, migrant, and vagrant birds found in northeast Africa—and it just got even better. Now fully revised and expanded, this comprehensive, easy-to-use guide has been updated with the latest information on distribution, identification, and taxonomy. New vagrants to the region have been added; color plates, illustrations, and distribution maps have been thoroughly updated and improved; and much more—making this still the must-have guide for birders, naturalists, and travelers in the region.

  • Covers Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, and the Socotra archipelago
  • Features more than 2,600 illustrations on 213 stunning color plates
  • Provides a color distribution map for every species
  • Detailed species accounts on facing pages describe key identification features, similar species, geographical variation, habitat, status, and voice
  • Includes a glossary, identification tips, and information about habitats
  • Key identification features are shown more prominently in the text
  • Now includes an annotated distributional checklist by country and a comparison table for large white-headed gulls

Nigel Redman is a publisher and bird tour leader who has visited Africa many times. Terry Stevenson and John Fanshawe are the authors of Birds of East Africa (Princeton) and have many years of experience leading bird tours and conducting conservation work in Africa.
