Key Features of Birds of the Indian Subcontinent (English) 2nd Edition

  • Author: Grimmett, Richard|Author;Inskipp, Carol|Author;Inskipp, Tim|Author;
  • Publisher: Oxford University Press

Birds of the Indian Subcontinent (English) 2nd Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 1,295

Birds Of The Indian Subcontinent, written by Richard Grimmett, Carol Inskipp, and Tim Inskipp, is an essential guidebook for every ornithologist and bird lover.

Summary Of The Book

Birds Of The Indian Subcontinent is the latest version of the field guide that was published in 1998, in the same name. This newest edition covers nearly all species of birds that can be found in Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, the Maldives, Bangladesh, and Bhutan.

This second edition of the book contains special features such as fully upgraded colour maps of the entire bird species, coverage of all the bird species in the Indian subcontinent, and a portable volume which concisely highlights key characteristics of each bird from the region.

Birds Of The Indian Subcontinent has information on more than 1300 species of birds. Some of the species of birds in the book are Locustella naevia, Otus thilohoffmanni, Pallas’ grasshopper warbler, S. whistleri, and Seicercus burkii.

The authors have included 214 colour plates for quick visual reference. The plates are accompanied by maps and descriptions of each bird species. The plates are placed such that they face maps and text for quick reference. Newer plates have been added to the second edition and many of the older plates from the previous edition have been repainted. For bird species that are difficult to observe such as the warbler, rose finch, and nightjar, the authors have included detailed tables which summarise specific identification characteristics.

Birds Of The Indian Subcontinent was published in 2011.

Very good

This book is the second edition of the "Pocket Guide to the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent" and not the old handbook. Very nicely compiled and improved over the earlier edition. Major and useful improvements being, the text and distribution maps are placed opposite to the plates & the maps have been revised. It is almost a combo of the leading field guides for the subcontinent.
There are 226 plates. Most families are put on many plates with not more than 6-7 species on a single plate owing to big and good illustrations with actual names and not numbers below every species. For confusing fami

Definitive Buy for Birders!

For amateur birders, the new handbook edition of Grimmett, Inskipp and Inskipp is going to be a definitive companion to identifying birds in the field. Weighing slightly more than its predecessor,two things that make the tome a winner among the current crop of field guides to Indian birds is the replacement of the somber grey backgrounds with white backgrounds on the plates, bringing the identifying characteristics of the birds to the fore, and well, making the illustrations quite a feast for the eyes,which were previously lost in the monsoon grey plates. One doesn't have to fumble anymore to

First to review

Birds of the Indian Subcontinent

After purchasing a few similar books on this topic, I found this to be the most comprehensive- All 1295 Birds and all plates are in color. Well categorized and laid out. Its better than the others because of its evenly spread plates,and the trick being you can flip thru pages to stop at a page on which color, size or shape resembles what you have seen. From Ducks to owls this book as been a pleasure to kid and adults. It also makes a wonderful gift and more so to visitors to the subcontinent with an interest in ornithology.

Birds of the Indian Subcontinent - SECOND EDITION

Not as usual, Flipkart delivered it three days after my purchase. It always delivers on the 2nd day, This time it was a day later. First, the cover shown on Flipkart is not as awesome as it is in real.It is brightly colored. Now, the second thing is that all other reviewers have written that the map is on the opposite side of the bird. This makes it a 'no-clear' thing. This opposite page means - on the right hand, you will get the name and picture whereas on the left page, there will be the label on top and the maps and ID will come below it, which makes it on the opposite page. On the13th pag

Good reference guide but can be improved!

The new revised edition of the book has the bird location maps along with description and illustrations to the right hand side. The book is quite comprehensive and lists all the birds of indian subcontinent. the illustrations are clear and help in identifying females, males and juveniles quite easily. This is very useful for identify birds. However, what I felt missing was a ready reckoner /cheat sheet where we can identify birds readily with bill shape, bird colour, prominent crest, or size of body. This type of reference is found in Salim Ali's books. Since there are 1300 odd birds, it is qu
