Birds of the Indian Subcontinent – the definitive field guide to the birds of this magical region – just got even better.
This enhanced fixed-format version of the book – featuring songs and calls – is set to change birding, forever.
Optimised for tablets, it features the book in crisp, clear high-resolution. Superb, zoomable colour plates of the highest detail lie opposite comprehensive identification text and accurate range maps. In addition, this e-book features songs, calls and other sounds from 1,212 species, placed conveniently next to the accompanying species text. The 1,340 sounds included on this e-book represent more than 95% coverage of regular species in the region.
This epic collection of images and sounds represents a step change in the way birders operate. No more carrying heavy books into the field. No more trying to remember sounds days or weeks after the event, while all other methods for taking sounds into the field are consigned to the dustbin.
This e-book provides a complete field-based ID solution – no birder will want to be without it.
