About the Author

Craig Robson has visited South-East Asia many times in the past 25 years, and he has seen and studied more bird species of that region than anyone else in Europe. He helped launch the thriving Oriental Bird Club and served on the Council of the OBC for five years, writing numerous papers in their journal during that time. Craig is based in Norfolk, England. A selection of leading artists, including Richard Allen, Hilary Burn, Clive Byers, Daniel Cole, John Cox, Antony Disley, Martin Elliott, Mike Langman, Ian Lewington, Andrew Mackay, Stephen Message, Chris Schmidt, Jan Wilczur and Tim Worfolk, have been specially commissioned to provide the full-colour identification plates. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

This is an update of the 2000 field guide - a personal favourite- still featuring the neat and accurate illustrations- great for ID purposes- and the very nice concise and useful species descriptions.

Its main advantage is the updated taxonomy and nomenclature, which will be indispensable to more serious birders, including the addition of some 25 newly-recorded species. The new flexi-cover is great and enhances field-use.

It has drawbacks however. The overall size (15.5 X 23.8cm) and weight is a bit too big to carry around, so it is awkward as a field guide (although it remains excellent for general reference). It still lacks individual range-maps, which is a strong disadvantage in the field (although distribution is given in general terms). The species accounts are in a separate section away from the plates, which can be fiddly and time consuming; you have to navigate between page number, species number, and plate number.

In my view the condensed 2005 version had an easier overall arrangement. It was more practical: lightweight and smaller, in many cases featuring larger illustrations, and species accounts directly opposite the plates.

Having noted all of those (relatively minor) flaws, I should say that this awesome book is still easily the best guide to the region.

Clearly full of information bet somewhat hard to find what you want. Not organized by country so when I went to Cambodia, left it home - also because it's VERY heavy and too big to use as a travel guide to birds.

This is the best ever bird guide book for the region. Size and weight make it quite portable for your hiking.

The format of all information being on side-by-side pages is very nice, though the information is not as complete as in the original format which I owned previously.
