    Description

    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 ...

    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...

    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 ...

    Great for beginners in bird watching.

    Amazing book for beginners in bird watching. The description are exactly what is needed to spot each bird, and the pictures are very well organized to leaf through them as you go bird watching. The paper is of very good quality, so the pictures of the birds are very clear (they are drawings and not photos). The population statistics for each sub-species is included which helps a lot.

    Flipkart was prompt with the delivery as usual.

    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 ...
