Following the success of My first book of Southern African birds (Volume 2) introduces a further 58 fascinating birds found at the seashore, rivers and lakes, in grasslands and forests, and also in suburban gardens. Striking full-colour illustrations are accompanied by brief descriptions in four languages (English, Afrikaans, Zulu, Xhosa), and there are visual clues to diet, nest, footprint and each bird’s relative size. This book will appeal to southern Africa's younger readers and inspire an interest in birds and the natural world.
