The Birds of Africa, Volume VII:
Sparrows to Buntings
Edited by C. Hilary Fry & Stuart Keith

Hardcover | 2004 | This edition is out of print | ISBN: 9780691119526


By far the most authoritative and comprehensive work ever published on the birds of Africa, this seventh and final volume in the set covers more than 340 species, from sparrows to buntings. The editors and artists have worked closely with nine other authors--all acknowledged experts on their bird families--to produce a superb reference in which encyclopedic texts on every species are complemented by accurate and detailed paintings and drawings of the birds themselves. Full bibliographies, acoustic references, and indexes complete this marvelous work of reference.


"Each of these volumes represents a massive amount of work, and the editors and publisher, assisted by an impressive list of contributors, are to be congratulated on putting together the most comprehensive account of African birds ever written."--Birds and Birding
