The name Ken Newman is synonymous with birds and birding, and 'Newman's birds by colour' remains a favourite among both younger birders and those starting out in the field.
Bold colour sections group the more commonly seen birds by the dominant colour of their plumage and other distinctive features, offering users a quick and easy way to identify them. A comprehensive introduction to birds and birding includes such topics as bird classification, anatomy, flight, migration, feeding and nesting. There are helpful sections offering information on what you need to go birding, and where and when to look for birds.
This third edition has been updated with the latest name changes as reflected in the commemorative edition of Newman's Birds of Southern Africa.
