I got the book and is really better to use and size is also good.
There are distribution map of every species with its status which is useful to learn.
The weak point of the book is illustration
plate of several species, likewise;Coot, Finfoot, Stork, Gulls, Bulbuls, Woodshrikes, Owls, Coucals and some others.
Similarly, there was not mentioned of some birds as found in Nepal, like, Black headed Ibis.
I am expecting much more information on Internet about birds and updates.
Thank you the entire team of publication and authors.

One of the best ever field guides for an Birdwatcher who is a resident of India or coming from other countries for this beautiful activity.
Nice illustrations with maps & description of each species.
