Description:

For birders, Vietnam is unquestionably one of the key countries in Asia. While its avifauna of just in excess of 900 species is rather overshadowed numerically by some of its near neighbours, especially China and Thailand, ten of these are found nowhere else on Earth and another 27 are almost endemic to the country. Among these are several species new to science discovered at the end of the 20th century, like Chestnut-eared and Golden-winged Laughingthrushes, or species rediscovered after long periods without records, such as the enigmatic Grey-crowned Crocias, all of them the result of a renewed wave of ornithological exploration in the decades since the end of the Vietnam War. This field guide, the first uniquely dedicated to the country’s rich birdlife, describes all recorded species in text and illustrations, with distribution maps for all except vagrants.

* Taxonomy follows the Handbook of the Birds of the World and BirdLife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World.

* Detailed texts covering status, habitat and behaviour, age, sex and geographical variation, voice, and confusion species.

* Over 1900 illustrations covering all species and distinctive subspecies, birds in flight, males and females, juveniles and non-breeding plumages, where appropriate.

* QR code for each species, linking to the Internet Bird Collection gallery of photos, videos and sounds.

* More than 870 full-colour range maps for all species other than vagrants.

* Well-marked subspecies groups receive full accounts, and the distributions of subspecies breeding in the region are clearly mapped.

* Local species name included.
