Field Guide to Birds of the Kruger National Park – featuring over 500 species

Field Guide to Birds of the Kruger National ParkStruik Nature is proud to present Field Guide to Birds of the Kruger National Park by Warwick Tarboton and Peter Ryan:

The Kruger National Park, one of the largest and best-known conservation areas in the world, supports a remarkable diversity of birdlife. This attractive guide presents more than 500 species that have been recorded there. Of these, more than 400 of the most common or likely to be seen species are described and supported by full-colour photographs and unique distribution maps based on actual sightings of the birds.

An informative introduction describes the park’s underlying geology, vegetation types, climate and rainfall, and how these dictate bird distribution within the area.
