Michael Webster (Author), Chew Yen Fook (Author). I bought it because I live in rural Thailand, am surrounded by countryside chock a block full of birds and after many years decided it would be interesting to know the names of the bird species around me and a little bit more about them. The great thing about this book (in my opinion) is that it is for ‘normal’ people rather than just specialist bird watching fanatics.

This book really delivers. I bought it because I live in rural Thailand, am surrounded by countryside chock a block full of birds and after many years decided it would be interesting to know the names of the bird species around me and a little bit more about them.

The great thing about this book (in my opinion) is that it is for ‘normal’ people rather than just specialist bird watching fanatics. It is well laid out with each page has a photo and description of 2 birds. The photo’s throughout are have been really well selected making identifying of bids very easy and the description makes it very clear what the key characteristics of each bird, how to distinguish one bird from others within its family grouping, where it normally feeds, what parts of Thailand it can been seen in, when it is normally present etc. It’s all very clear and precise. The general introduction to birds and bird watching in Thailand is also very informative and helpful.

The big plus of this book is that it is very easy to navigate around because the book has illustrated page corner tabs with silhouettes most closely matching the bird you may have seen (e.g., herons, egrets and storks –ducks- waders- pigeon, doves and parrots etc.). This gets you to the page that contains the family group of bird you may have seen very quickly and easily through visual rather than family group name recognition, and is a real benefit for the uninitiated of the bird world (like I was before I got this book). Once at the bird group page the photographs and descriptions very quickly allow you to identify the bird you have seen.

I guess the big question for anyone interested enough to want to buy a bird book is why buy this one with what appears to be a relatively limited number of bird species compared to some of the more comprehensive highly specialist bird watchers books. For me, I bought it because it was far lower cost than other books (I was interested in learning more about birds but not that interested!), but also because I liked the layout and content; each bird description has an accompanying photo rather than one having to look the bird up on a separate plate (or page of photo’s) and so identifying a bird is made a lot easier and quicker. In practice this book has been extremely convenient to use and its pocket size width makes it easy to carry around with you.

I would also say that the birds the book does feature have been extremely well chosen. Every bird I have seen in my day to day life (I’m not a bird watcher sat under a tree with field glasses) have all been in this book. I’ve seen and identified with the help of this book to date: grey herons, purple herons, cattle egrets, great egrets, little egrets, Asian Openbills, black shouldered kites, brahminy kites, a white bellied sea-eagle (on a recent beach holiday), western marsh harriers, black winged stilts (for the first time this morning when I went for my daily swim in a local lake – have I been blind!), rock pigeons, red collared doves, spotted doves, zebra doves, house swifts, barn swallows, ashy wood swallows, southern jungle crows, white rumped shama’s, pied fantails, common myna’s, white vented myna’s, hill myna’s (unfortunately in a cage), olive backed sunbirds, and Eurasian tree sparrows. That’s quite a list for someone who is not a bird watcher and barely knew a species of bird let alone differing bird types within bird groups before buying this book.

So, this book has been a bit of a life changer for me. It’s given me an added interest and connection with the countryside and bird life that surrounds me. I think the book is excellent and would serve as a superb introduction to birds for anyone interested in knowing more about the vast array of birds this truly amazing country of Thailand has. I fully recommend it to you.
