Best Field Guide to the Birds of India Nov. 26 2012
By Olivier Langrand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently used this field guide during a trip to India and I was very satisfied with the quality of the illustrations, with the text that is concise although precise and the maps useful even if very small considering the size of the geographic area covered by this book. The taxonomy is up to date and finally the paper is very good quality, thick enough to prevent seeing the illustrations from the next page appearing through and pretty resistant to intensive use. I wish I had bought a hard cover (available?).
I highly recommend the selection of this field guide for birders visiting India.

Good drawings. Quite Compact, with short and precise info. Good maps and good upgrade from first edition. If you go birding in India or the neighboring countries, this is the book you need!

Closest thing to Sibley's field guide for India Oct. 28 2013
By P. chavan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I grew up in India but now reside in the US and started birding only after I came to the US. Last year when I planned a visit to India for visiting family, I decided to spend a few days birding and went to look for a field guide. After scouring all the local libraries and bookshops for all the books on Indian birding, I have to say that this is the closes thing to the Sibley's field guide for India. That is, it is good enough and small enough to be used in the field for identification. This book covers entire subcontinent, so it is a bit bulkier than the Sibley's eastern or western US field guides.

For every bird, it has a short text describing its key field marks and its habitat and distribution. The best thing about the field guide is that it has description, images and distribution maps all side-by-side. The plates are pretty good and realistic. On the negative side, the print is a little small and may be difficult to read for some people. Also, for some birds, the colors are a bit off, as if I am looking at an old photograph. I only found that an issue for some birds where the color differences are subtle. But, it is not that big a deal. The description does clearly point out the field marks when the differences are that subtle.

So, if you are looking for a field guide for India birds, I would heartily recommend this book. Even the Indian birders that I met, suggested this as the best field guide for Indian birds.

Excellent guide Dec 10 2013
By Peter Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After using this excellent book for 3 weeks in India the only change I would suggest would be to provide page references in the 'Family Summaries' section (pp. 24-39) to deeper in the book. This would enable new users to go straight to the right section in the guide rather than having to go via the large index. I'd also suggest the book come with a strong plastic cover as standard.

Feathery Friends of the Subcontinent Sept. 22 2013
By Kay L. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I haven't tested this yet in India (bought pre-trip we're planning), but I love the layout -- distribution maps are given alongside the descriptions, which face the color illustrations. Illustrations include the many variations in any individual bird in color (to be expected for a guide that spans so many latitudes). The vocal descriptions appear to be clear -- I'll know more after I'm actually using it in India, but right now it looks like exactly what a first-time visiting birder (at my amateur level) will need.
