Book Description:

One of the Birdbooker Report's Best Bird Books of 2014

"A must have for birders with an interest in the region!" --Ian Paulsen, Birdbooker Report

"This is an excellent book and will serve travelling birders very well indeed and I am sure will be just as welcomes by local wildlife lovers in New Guinea. . . . This is also a thing of beauty in itself and a pleasure to drool over." --Bo Beolens, Fatbirder

"Amazing! Please buy it, whether or not you're planning a trip to West Papua or PNG. It's a must-have book. . . . [A] high quality field guide, with maps on the same page as the plates, excellent, informative text, good artwork--and everything one hopes for in a field guide." --Birding Ecotours

" Birds of New Guinea will be the major reference to birds of the island for many years to come and the authors are to be congratulated on a scholarly yet accessible book." --Phil Gregory, Australian Bird Life

"I can not recommend this guide highly enough whether you are planning a trip to New Guinea or you are just an armchair birder widening your horizons about the world's birds. An excellent present for yourself or the birder in your family." --Gloster Birder

"Pratt and Beehler here cover all 780 bird species in this region, drawing in even more biological data--including some on behavior, diet, and nesting--than typically found in field guides. Detailed species accounts are now separate from the 111 color illustrations--most new and twice as many as the first edition--with additional abridged species accounts and habitat maps facing these plates. A long-awaited, greatly expanded update to an authoritative regional reference." --Judy Quinn, Library Journal

"A wonderful updated and expanded second edition to the original Birds of New Guinea published 28 years ago. . . . In Birds of New Guinea: Second Edition, the authors have greatly expanded the description of each species beyond the typical birding guide. . . . An absolute must-have for both birders and individuals who work in the public or private sector focused on conservation of New Guinea's ecosystems." --Gabriel Thoumi, Mongabay.com

"A must-have for everyone from ecotourists to field researchers, Birds of New Guinea remains an indispensable guide to the diverse birds of this remarkable region." --Ornithological Newsletter

"If you're lucky enough to go birding in New Guinea, you'll want this field guide." --Grant McCreary, Birder's Library

"There is no doubt that this book will be a very popular addition to many birders libraries over the next few months and those visiting PNG next year will armed with a great deal more knowledge than before--the real test of a new book comes in the field and I like many more am looking forward to giving it that test." --Ashley Banwell, Rare Bird Alert

"From cassowaries to parrots and birds-of-paradise to fairy-wrens, with sicklebills, mannikins and fantails in between, birders visiting New Guinea need to be prepared for a deluge of delightful birds, and Birds of New Guinea: Second Edition is the book to help them do it. From an extensive orientation to beautifully illustrated plates and expanded species accounts, this guide is the go-to resource all things birding in New Guinea." --Melissa Mayntz, About.com Birding

"An incredibly good field guide." --Grant McCreary, Birder's Library

Praise for the first edition:"This book is not only indispensable to any bird-watcher visiting New Guinea and the adjacent islands, but, owing to the wealth of its information, it will be of great interest to anyone who is seriously interested in birds." --American Scientist
