This being the only field guide to the birds of 3 of the Melanesian countries, it was a must have on my recent trip there, and it proved invaluable indeed. It is comprehensive, covering all species known to occur in the region covered, and in fact it allowed me to identify most birds I have seen. Although a few illustrations are poor, even hindering correct id'ing (hence the 4 stars), most were found to be pretty good.
Maps and text are placed opposite the colour plates, which is handy for quickly seeing what species are found on any one given island at all.
The book is also light enough to be portable in the field.
In short, if you are lucky enough to visit these exotic archipelagos and have any interest in birds (easily the most visible part of their terrestrial fauna), don't leave home without this guide!
