Birds of Central Asia

Postby Lesser Spot Finder » Fri Jul 20, 2012 10:56 am

Coming soon:

Manuel Schweitzer, Raffael Ayé & Tobias Roth. Birds of Central Asia - Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan. Christopher Helm & Princeton University Press. June 2012. Details. 336 pages, 141 color plates.I

I have been in contact with the Head of Ornithology at Helm and although he wouldn't commit to a mention of the AOS in the book (I did try). Military birders will be mentioned for adding to the knowledge of the avi-fauna of Afghanistan. Fingers crossed.

It would be nice if they donated a few books to those who submitted notes!

Hopefully we can get a photograph of the book in action!

Good work Richard. We have to fight for acknowledgement everywhere now. A worth cause though for this book.

Publishing date?

A week after the Bird Fair which seems strange to me. Amazon have not committed a date as yet and you cannot pre-order.
