Description

This notable addition to the literature on Malayan birds is intended to enable the beginner in ornithology, or the new-comer to the country, to recognize the common birds of the towns and inhabited countryside and to learn at the same time something of the classification, habits and distribution of our bird fauna as a whole.

A short introduction summarizes information on breeding seasons, migration and other aspects of biology, and explains the use of scientific names. In the remainder of the book over a hundred species are briefly described, with notes on nesting habits, and eighty are illustrated in colour.
