Compiling a colorful collection of artistic representations of the myriad bird species found in South Africa, this beautifully illustrated manual celebrates the diverse, fascinating, and unique feathered fauna found in the national park and the adjoining Mpumalanga Province. Featuring 91 annotated plates dynamically illustrated by seven of South Africa’s finest bird artists, this comprehensive guide provides details on each bird’s habitat, food source, behaviors, breeding strategies, and in some cases, their estimated population status for the areas they inhabit. Accompanied by maps and calendar bars highlighting the full and peak breeding seasons for birds of the northeastern regions of South Africa and beautifully photographed by experts in the field, this essential guide is an invaluable and breathtakingly artistic resource for birdwatchers and nature lovers worldwide.
