With 234 superb color plates, and more than 950 color maps, Birds of East Asia makes it easy to identify all of the region's species. The first single-volume field guide for eastern Asia, the book covers major islands including Japan and Taiwan, as well as the Asian continent from Kamchatka to the Korean Peninsula. The region's major bird families are presented and distinct species are noted, from the well-known Steller's Sea Eagle--the world's largest eagle--to those less familiar to Western ornithologists, such as the Scaly-sided Merganser, Oriental Stork, and Mugimaki Flycatcher. The maps provide useful information about the seasonal migratory patterns of all bird varieties.Birds of East Asia is a must-have resource for birdwatchers, ecotourists, and wildlife enthusiasts everywhere.A handy single-volume guide to all the bird species of East Asia, including China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Russia 234 beautiful color plates More than 950 color maps covering seasonal habitats and migration routes

Winner of the 2009 Louis Brownlow Book Award "Finally. The first single-volume guide for eastern Asia, and it's exquisitely illustrated."--Matt Mendenhall, Birder's World "Although northeastern Asia boasts a number of regional endemics and is a source of many actual and potential vagrants to North America, the region has been sorely lacking a modern field guide... Birds of East Asia finally provides a treatment that meets the standards expected for modern field guides... I will certainly take it with me on any future visits to the region. That's a compliment I cannot offer any other current or past field guide to the region."--Nick Lethaby, Birder "Any birder planning to visit this fascinating part of the world will want to get Birds of East Asia for their trip."--Federick Brock, Wildlife Activist "Eastern Asia, in a biological sense, represents one of the last great frontiers, even for a group as generally well known as birds. Brazil, a field ornithologist with considerable experience with Asian avifauna, has produced the first comprehensive guide to birds of the region... This is an excellent field guide and reference book. Birders who travel extensively in East Asia (or who want to) will own a copy as will any library with strong ornithological holdings."--Choice "This interesting guide, which covers major islands including Japan and Taiwan, as well as the Asian continent from Kamchatka to the Korean peninsula, is amply illustrated with a plethora of color plates and maps that will provide any traveler with the information necessary to identify any bird of this vast region."--Indiana Audubon Quarterly
