More than 250 species are included in this useful and concise pocket-sized guide, with each individual species account supported by a clear colour photograph. Thumbnail silhouettes, visually identifying the different family groups, are shown on the guide pages; these lead the reader quickly to the relevant section of the book. The introduction explains how to use the guide effectively and also contains fascinating information on bird biology and behaviour. It also has sections on Sri Lankan endemics and where to watch birds.The text has been fully updated to take account of the latest taxonomy, and many recently 'split' species are included.
