The Middle East has a vast range of avifauna, with over 800 species known to breed in the region; it is an important area for both indigenous species and those which pass through on migration. Birds of the Middle East, the latest addition to the Bloomsbury Wildlife Guides series, provides photographic coverage of more than 300 species regularly seen in the region. Concise text for each species includes identification, songs and calls, behaviour, distribution and habitat; the book is also packed with photos, each carefully selected to guide identification. Pocket-sized yet authoritative, this is the perfect companion for any wildlife-friendly visitor to the Middle East.

If I ever get back to the Middle East, I will certainly take this gem. * Birdwatching Magazine * Each bird has a concise but excellent description and where to see it. There is a section on the countries covered, which includes some good birding sites along with images of habitat. * Bird Watching * Fits the bill for a book that can be kept in the side pocket of a backpack ... The photographs are typically of excellent quality and cover variation well. * British Birds *
