India is one of the world's Biodiversity hotspots, hosting more than 12 per cent of all bird species of the planet. Birds of India describes the 575 most common bird species that are seen on the Indian subcontinent. This book is meant for a wide audience with a general interest in birds. The text is easy to read and covers the main visual identification characteristics of the birds. It describes their calls, typical manners and distribution. Most of the birds are depicted in striking colour photographs. The first chapter introduces the reader to India's wealth of avian species and the variety of landscapes and nature reserves where they are seen.
