Field Guide to the Birds of Bangladesh (Helm Field Guides) (Paperback)
Field Guide to the Birds of Bangladesh is indispensable to anybody interested in the wildlife of this beautiful country.
Bangladesh--an amazing country packed with rich birdlife that until recently has been very much off the beaten trail in terms of birding. Why is this? Part of the reason is there has never been a field guide to its ornithological riches--until now. Birders are increasingly turning to this relatively safe country. And what wonders await them.
Written by two of the top birding authorities in the region, Richard Grimmett and Tim Inskipp, along with regional expert Paul Thompson, this book features concise identification text and accurate maps opposite a series of superb plates illustrating all species and subspecies in the country.
Deepal Warakadoda is Sri Lanka's leading field ornithologist. A tour leader, photographer and conservationist, Deepal made his name with his stunning 2002 discovery of the Serendib Scops Owl in Sri Lanka's Sinharaja Forest. This owl was a species completely new to science - the holy grail for any birdwatcher. Richard Grimmett and Carol and Tim Inskipp are widely respected as the leading experts on the birds of southern Asia. Their major work was the epic Birds of the Indian Subcontinent (Helm, 1998), from which has sprung several highly acclaimed field guides.
