This comprehensive book is the first field guide to the birds of The Gambia and Senegal, an area of West Africa popular with birders for its many tropical African birds. The guide provides full accounts of over 660 bird species and depicts nearly all of these in 48 beautiful color plates. 
“A first-rate book that is a fine contribution to bird literature. For the birder who has everything, this makes a great gift.”—Roy John, Canadian Field-Naturalist
"A beautiful, succinct and very useful guide to the region's bird life."—Clay E. Corbin, Quarterly Review of Biology
