A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Indonesia is the best, most comprehensive photographic guide to the birds of Indonesia.

Because of its vast size and geographical location, Indonesia has the world's most diverse avifauna. It boasts of more than 1,600 species-of which 235 rare birds are only found in Indonesia-making it the world's number one travel destination for bird-watching.

This bird field guide covers a total of 912 species, including most of the non-migratory and endemic species that are seen only in Indonesia and a number of threatened and endangered species. A photograph and distribution map is given for each bird. Many new photographs of Indonesian birds appear in this volume for the first time and have been carefully selected to show the important characteristics of each bird. The concise text provides vital information, and an index of common names is provided at the back of the book.
