Birds of the Indian Subcontinent
Exceptional customer service Get grinmett help and advice. This is the second edition of the authors’ groundbreaking Birds of the Indian Subcontinent and covers all the bird species found in India, Pakistian, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and the Maldives.
The plates face the descriptions and maps for quick at-a-glance reference. Many of the plates have been repainted for this edition and a number of new species added. This guide also provides tables, summarising identification features of particularly difficult groups such as nightjars, warblers and rosefinches.
Carol and Tim Inskipp are freelance wildlife consultants. All three authors are widely travelled in Asia and authors of a series of books on the birds of the region. Comprehensive and authoritative, this is an indispensable guide for anyone birding anywhere in the Indian Subcontinent.
Between these far-flung extremities, over species have been recorded within the countries covered: Many interesting taxa have been elevated to species level with probably more soon to follow.
In addition, our ever-increasing knowledge of identification, behaviour and distribution all amply birvs a new and revised edition.

Birders will however be understandably wary of yet another Helm guide to the region. A series of regional guides to the subcontinent, published birdw the pocket guide, added nothing to the original volume.
There is no excuse for such lazy publishing and with a number of other field guides now on the market, the visiting birder has a choice of which to take. To regain its former pre-eminent position among these, this new edition will have required much work.
The commonly encountered starlings and mynas, for example, are now displayed over three plates rather than two cramped ones.

This has also enabled the distribution maps to be placed alongside the species accounts whereas before they were often annoyingly distant.
Many species have been repainted for this edition and the maps revised, both being enlarged and largely for the better. I would have liked to see more information in the habitat and habits section, often a good clue to identification, but this is invariably very brief.
Altitudinal range could have been included grim,ett montane birds, the Himalayan avifauna being a major component.
Field users will also be relieved to find that the families appear in a modern yet orthodox order, the taxonomy adopted by the pocket guide being too unfamiliar to allow easy use. Much as the original books were a vast improvement on anything richaed was available before, so it is with this guide.
The authors and artists additional and welcome hard work has resulted in better plates, text and maps incorporating all known and possible splits and much other new information, rendering this single volume pretty much indispensable to a birder travelling in the subcontinent.
