Last November when I was in SA, I got myself a copy of Roberts Bird Guide - 2nd Edition
Am really imppressed
It is a standard field guide to the birds of SA, and so much more.
Drawings of all species, and some photos. Descriptions, distribution maps etc, all the usual
But then there is also good comparitive info/diagrams of similar species, and hard to id species.
Even if one has the "standard guides" (Sasol, Newmans etc), this one is well worth getting
