"This is now the must-have reference for anyone interested in the birds of western Africa. . . . [It] is indispensable to any bird watcher visiting in the region."--Eirik A. T. Blom, Bird Watcher's Digest
"Invaluable for serious birders and scientists working in or visiting the area. It would also make an excellent addition to a collection of field guides for home or office use."--Condor
"Anyone with an interest in West African birds will want to own this book. We have been waiting for some considerable time for someone to produce a modern guide to West African birds, so Nik Borrow and Ron Demey are to be congratulated for completing the task admirably. . . . [A] splendid achievement."--Stephen Rumsey, British Birds

Cheke, author of Sunbirds
