Winner of the 2004 Best Bird Book - Africa, Worldtwitch
"Invaluable for serious birders and scientists working in or visiting the area. It would also make an excellent addition to a collection of field guides for home or office use."--Condor
"Anyone with an interest in West African birds will want to own this book. We have been waiting for some considerable time for someone to produce a modern guide to West African birds, so Nik Borrow and Ron Demey are to be congratulated for completing the task admirably. . . . [A] splendid achievement."--Stephen Rumsey, British Birds
"With so many birds to cover in one area, this guide does a nice job of grouping them for easy access and comparison. It is an excellent resource to have with you on a trip to the region."--Robert E. Hoopes, Wildlife Activist
