5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have, April 18 2003

This review is from: A Field Guide to the Birds of Borneo, Sumatra, Java, and Bali: The Greater Sunda Islands (Paperback)
Any serious birder to the listed regions of this book would buy this book.
It is the best guide of the region so far with excellent plates and useful details. What I find especially useful, particularly for the raptors, is that they show illustrations of the birds in flight.
The drawings appear consistent and the bird's information at the back of the book is easy to access.
The birds are categorised according to their family which definately makes for faster checks and identification, which I find important when in the field.
The spine of the book though is a little week and you might want to have it rebound before it falls apart - especially with all the browsing that is to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it re-bound, Nov. 29 2001

This review is from: A Field Guide to the Birds of Borneo, Sumatra, Java, and Bali: The Greater Sunda Islands (Paperback)
This was the book that everyone who seemed to be serious used in Borneo, but if you are going to be out in the bush for more than a few days and make frequent use of field guides, consider having it re-bound before you leave -- many people I passed along the way were finding that the plate pages were starting to fall out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good and comprehensive guide to the region., Oct. 10 2000

This review is from: A Field Guide to the Birds of Borneo, Sumatra, Java, and Bali: The Greater Sunda Islands (Paperback)
Many newer guides have been published about birds of this region, but this book still deserves its place on the bookshelf of anyone interested in birds of South-east Asia. Illustrations are good, and descriptions are detailed and mostly accurate. A bit bulky to carry in the field, but not a problem if you bring it in a backpack. The situation with forest fires in South-east Asia (especially Indonesia) is growing worse each year, so get out there and see some of these extraordinary birds while you still can!
