Just bought myself a copy of:

Hornbills of the World - A Photographic Guide
By Poonswad, Kemp & Strange
ISBN: 9789810735289

This is a fantastic account of the worlds Hornbills.
There is a general introduction section dealing with behaviour, feeding etc
Then there is a section on the African species, and a section on the Asian species.

Each species has it's own entry.
Fantastic photos, a distribution map, taxonomy, breeding and status are dealt with.

Not a cheap book, but well worth it imo

No problem. :thumbs_up:

I have discovered a UK based online book shop that specialises in natural history.
They have thousands of titles in stock.
I feel like a child in a sweet shop. There are about 10 books in my "basket" which I will be buying over the next few months. The SO would not be happy with me if she knew...... :twisted:
PM me if you want the details. They ship world wide.

Hi Yoda,

Any chance you could share a link to the website of the UK retailer you mention?

I'm tempted to get myself a copy.

Not sure if I can post the link?
Perhaps one one of the mods could clarify?

PM sent in the mean time
