Following the success of the first edition of A Field Guide To The birds Of Thailand, a new edition has been compiled, incorporating Thai plate names and index. Thailand continues to attract increasing numbers of birdwatchers on a regular basis who appreciate its vast diversity of bird life. This book, with its meticulous colour artworks and maps for almost 1,000 species, continues to be an invaluable guide for English and Thai-speaking bird enthusiasts who require details on the identification, voice, breeding, status, habitat and distribution of all the distinctive species and subspecies of the region.
Craig Robson has travelled regularly to Thailand for the last 20 years, having seen and studied more bird species of that region than anyone else in Europe. He helped launch the thriving Oriental Bird Club and served on the Council of the OBC for 5 years, writing numerous papers in their journal during that time. For New Holland, Craig has authored the Field Guide to the Birds of South East Asia. He is based in Norfolk, England. A selection of leading artists, all of them specialists in their fields, have provided the full-colour identification plates. The artists include Richard Allen, Hilary Burn, Clive Byers, Daniel Cole, John Cox, Antony Disley, Martin Elliott, Mike Langman, Ian Lewington, Andrew Mackay, Stephen Message, Chris Schmidt, Jan Wilczur and Tim Worfolk.
