Birds of Thailand reviews

We’re happy to report that our new Field Guide to Thailand has been a huge success, creating interest around the world. It’s hardly surprising as Thailand is the most popular country for birdwatching in South-East Asia. Take a look at these quotes and see what the media is saying about Birds of Thailand!

“Yet, if you already have Robson’s “Birds of South-East Asia” – taxonomy aside, do you need this book? Yes, you do. I already mentioned the position of the main text and the lack of maps in Robson’s, but the final conceptual nail is the lack of bird names in the plates, hence you have to compare the numbers on the right (plates) and the left (a short text) page. The new Treesucon and Limparungpatthanakij’s book (it will probably be known as the Lynx guide) is, simply, more user-friendly and far more comfortable to use in the field. Without doubt – go for it.”

“To conclude, Lynx produced another good field guide that has a few nice little extras. Though personally I will also bring Robson along next time (eg for the quantity of plates) this book is a must-have for anyone visiting the area. It’s more than fair to say that none of the Lynx field guides have let us down so far.”

“One thing that really irritates in some field guides is when the range maps or species accounts are on a different page to the plates for each species but Birds of Thailand keeps all the relevant information together on facing pages making it simple to use in the field./…/ Birds of Thailand is an overdue and very welcome addition to the library of birders in Thailand due to its high quality and forward-thinking way of dealing with an ever-changing taxonomy. Score: 9/10”
