With more than 3000 illustrations (more than 800 new), a scan-and-play bird-call feature using a free downloadable app (which contains more than 1000 calls for 866 species), fully revised text, maps and plate annotations and a comprehensive coverage of the region’s birds, this edition is in a larger format, making it far easier to use.
