Description

This is a condensed version of Bertram E. Smythies’ Birds of Borneo which at present is the only comprehensive guide to Bornean birds. This pocketbook guide, a great help in the field, contains the original plates painted by Commander A.M. Hughes using new transparencies and color separations giving a more faithful representation of the originals. Most of the information is from the third edition of The Birds of Borneo with some additional material drawn from other published sources. Many bird observers will find this book extremely useful.
