Yep, excellent book. If you're a bird fundi, there won't be anything new here, but if you're more of a beginner trying to learn more about our avian friends, then its very informative and easy to read. I found the chapter on brood parasites particularly interesting as I was oblivious to this behaviour, but really the whole book is well written, illustrated and laid out.
