This is beter news than a fuel price decrease.

I still use my 1980 hardcover "Birds of the Kruger Park" by Newman exclusevly when in the Kruger , kept up to date with notes etc.

It is so much easier having a specialized bird book for the park -
- you only have +-400 definate options to browse rather than 900 for the whole of South Africa .
- distribution maps are more specific and detailed
- for rare birds they mention specific locations spotted
- species accounts also give more detail specific to KNP
- also migration arrivals and departures
- the Eureka factor (you are positive that you have the correct ID)
- you get to know each page (almost)

Prime origins "best birding in kruger" is also very good for learning your "jiz" but it is still not a field guide .

This Roberts will be a winner 'cos it really fills a need .
I hope kalahari.net gets it in to spend wildcard rewards on .
