Seabirds hold a special place in the hearts of birders, not least because of the challenge of getting to grips with a group of birds that is largely inaccessible, and living in an often hostile habitat. Guide To Seabirds Of Southern Africa is the first book focusing exclusively on the nearly 132 seabird species that occur around the southern African coastline and adjacent Southern Ocean.
The book is primarily an ID guide, but the author includes information about these birds’ fascinating biology and behaviour. The text is richly supported with photographs, as well as distribution maps for all the birds. A detailed introduction covers, among other topics, seabird origins, havens, feeding, breeding and conservation, as well as how best to watch and photograph these enigmatic birds.
The author Peter Ryan is Director of the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology at the University of Cape Town. He is a keen bird photographer, has travelled widely in pursuit of birds and has authored a range of books on birds and various sub Antarctic islands. Seabirds are Peter’s special area of interest.
