I reviewed 3 modern books. This one is suitable for a field guide, though I found another to be somewhat superior. The illustrations in this book are smaller and crowded. The distribution maps are not always close to the descriptions and illustrations. Descriptions are brief. I will leave this book home as a good addition to my reference library and take the better book to India.

It will be a welcome addition to our trip to ndia.

This is more of an illustrated checklist. Being the size that it is, and that it aims to be a field guide, it is a shame to have given it a hardcover. The overall arrangement is a bit unwieldy: the range maps for example are in a separate section to the species accounts, which are very brief and make too much use of symbols and abbreviations.
The plates are quite overcrowded. The illustrations lack charm, depth or texture in my opinion.
Although it is superceded by other field guides, it still serves as a handy checklist (if you are already familiar with identifying most of the birds) and need a quick field reference.

Of the several field guides to Indian birds, this is certainly one of the best researched, illustrated and sleekly designed books. The pictorial index in the inside cover page is brilliant and a great help for birders out in the field. Distribution maps are easy to locate and acurate.

One would have liked to have a little more descriptive write ups on each bird, but the need to keep the size of the book manageable might perhaps have prompted the authers keep them short and sweet. However, due to the criptic and short descriptions in the book I find myself carrying two instead of one book in my backpack, Kazmierczak as a ready reference and Salim Ali for details.

Illustrations are the best among all field guides available to date.

Overall, a good and necessary addition to one's collection of bird books of Indian Region.

The plates are delightful and the descriptions of habitat, song, geographical distribution etc are well done and accurate. However, what is needed is a FIELD guide! Why not base the book on Peterson guides and make it fit in the pocket. As it is you have to cut out the plates with a razor blade to make it into a field guide--or leave it at home. This is true for most bird guides, whether it be Costa Rica or Ecuador--or India. What we need is a book we can use in the field. Since 90% of birding is done with guides we do not need all the other stuff!!

Plates were small and seemed to be more of a "blend" than the other book we took along. Still they were serviceable for us. The hard cover made it somewhat difficult to carry along during our short visit, but the latter would help preserve the book for someone wanting a more long lasting reference.

It's an outstanding book for the birds of indian sub continent, I found it great in field especially. The illustaration by Ber van Perlo are excellent. And the text is so brief and informative for the use in field identification.
