About the Author:

Raffael Ayé, Manuel Schweizer, and Tobias Roth are ornithologists based at SVS/BirdLife Switzerland, the Natural History Museum of Bern, and the University of Basel, Switzerland, respectively. They are experts on the birds of Central Asia, and their notable achievements include the discovery of the breeding grounds of the Large-billed Reed Warbler in Tajikistan.

Review:

"This is a valuable and much-needed book, one that very neatly fills a hole in the bibliography of Palearctic birding and has instantly become the standard guide to the region."--Steve Rooke, ABA Blog

"This is an excellent guide and one that is essential for any visit to the region. Central Asia provides a rich source for many vagrants to Europe, and this is a concise guide to the many iconic species and distinctive races that are highly sought after in Europe in late autumn. The appeal of this book extends well beyond its intended market and should be useful for anyone with an interest in Central Asia and its birds."--Peter Kennerley, British Birds

"Birds of Central Asia has done more than just plug the geographical gap that previously existed on many birder's bookshelves. It's provided a guide for the region that is comparable in standard to Birds of the Middle East and will prove invaluable to any visiting birder."--Stephen Menzie, BirdGuides

"The images are high-quality paintings arranged opposite well-written text descriptions and range maps. . . . Overall, a well-written, well-organized, and very serviceable guide to a region of the world that has lots of interesting avifauna and few avian biologists."--Choice

"Here is an excellent, first-ever guide to a little birded part of the planet. . . . The book is a must for anyone who plans to bird this region of the world. The book also would make a nice addition to anyone's library if they collect bird guides to all places on the globe."--FHB, Wildlife Activist
