About the Book

For a relatively tiny island, with such a high ratio of urban development, Singapore contains a surprisingly large number of birds – native species as well as seasonal visitors – due to its strategic position on a migration route between temperate Asia and the eastern tropics.

In this classic guide, Dr Christopher Hails leads the reader to all the major birdwatching locations in Singapore, identifying the various species to be found, their appearances, behaviour and habitats. His scholarly insights into ecology and avian migration, simplified for the lay reader, are enthralling and illuminating. 

The beautiful illustrations, painted by artist Frank Jarvis from field sketches and, where essential, from studying skins and nests in the Raffles’ Collection, offer the highest level of detail and accuracy.

Filled with a wealth of information, Birds of Singapore is the ideal introductory field guide to the island’s fascinating birdlife.
