Field Guide – Birds Of Brazil

It’s nice to see more and more field guides being made available in both paperback and Kindle versions.  I used to want a paper book with me in the field but as I get older and less willing to carry around excess weight, I am leaning towards Kindle versions.  If my recent series on Brazil has piqued your interest, maybe one of these guides would suit you.

 

Birds of Western and Central Africa: (Princeton Illustrated Checklists)

This book may be an older version but the countries it covers are pretty amazing!  The territory covered is vast–nearly 2,500 miles down the coast and over 1,000 miles inland, including not only Senegal, Nigeria, and the Democratic Republic of Congo but all or part of Benin, Burkina, Cameroon, Cape Verde, the Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Gabon, The Gambia, Ghana, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ghana, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Príncipe, São Tomé, Sierra Leone, and Togo.

Birds Of The Indian Ocean Islands – Field Guide

This is where I messed up.  Since I live in Australia, I thought I could save on shipping and buy this book in South Africa or Mauritius and have it on hand for birding in Madagascar.  I couldn’t find it anywhere!  What I should have done was buy the Kindle version to save on shipping and at least have something to refer to after birding in Madagascar.  Don’t make the same mistake, if you are Madagascar bound, this is the best birding guide book available.

Kaufman Field Guide To Advanced Birding (Kaufman Field Guides)

Kaufman Field Guide to Advanced Birding (Kaufman Field Guides) is one I am saving for next year as my travel schedule will be greatly reduced.  I want to spend more time improving my birding skills on local species!

The Eponym Dictionary Of Birds

Have you ever wondered where certain birds’ names come from?  Either the common name or the scientific name?  An example would be Kuhl’s Lory which is more commonly known as a Rimatara Lorikeet or in the native language Ura on Rimatara and Kura on Atiu.

This book has all kinds of bird name origins and the stories of those who named them.  It’s going on my Christmas list!

Which Field Guide For Pacific Island Birding?

I usually like to bring a field guide with me on a birding trip.  Our June trip to French Polynesia was originally scheduled for Feb 2015 and I brought it forward to June 2014 after concerns about award availability and potential devaluations.  I booked the flights in May so had no time to order a suitable guide book.  If I had, this is the one I would have gone for.  There aren’t a lot of birding guides for this region but I am familiar with the Princeton series and they consistantly deliver excellent products.
