This new larger edition of the well known birding book Sasol Birds of Southern Africa offers all the advancements of that guide in a larger format. It allows for better appreciation and easier use of the plates. Other features include calendar bars that show species' occurrence and breeding periods, a section on 'how to use this book', as well as sonograms depicting the calls of difficult-to-distinguish birds that have distinctive calls. The illustrations now have simplified labels, and pinpointing key differentiating features. Distribution maps have been updated, showing the relative abundance of a species in the region, and also indicating resident or migrant status. Species accounts have been rewritten and now include group introductions. Plates have been newly designed for ease of use and comparison. More than 380 new improved illustrations replace earlier ones.
