I forgot about this one.

Robert
Newman
Sasol
Sasol's My First bird book for kids Books 1 & 2
Sappi bird book by Jeff Lockwood
Childrens guild to birds of the KNP
And what no birder should be without: Dr Jacks Bird illistration (i think it's Jack the book with the funnt satires of birds)

I'm sure there is more way does this list look to short? Might have forgotten some.


By the way I'm not a serios birder or atleast I don't think I am.

Roberts Kruger birds. If it isn't in the book, it isnt in Kruger, unless it is a rare vagrant.
