WORLD REGION Companion Guides have a number of important features, including:

– A listing of all the bird species that are regularly present in the world region

– An indication of where in the world each bird family and species can be found in its native state

– Indications of restricted ranges within the world region

– Spotlighted species that have a restricted worldwide range


The key feature of all eBooks in the Companion Guide series is the way you can quickly and simply access relevant, up to date online information about every featured bird species. If your reading device is connected to the internet, a single click will take you to a search results page for a species, from where you can continue to search for additional information to whatever level of detail you desire.


Within each WORLD REGION Companion Guide you will find the following sections:

REGION LIST – check which species occur naturally and are regularly present in the world region, and see those that have a restricted distribution

Within the REGION LIST section there is also this helpful chapter:

SUB-REGIONS – an overview of the main continental regions, states, islands and marine areas of the world region that are referred to in the Region List

TAXONOMIC LIST – taxonomic details, showing each species’ order, family, genus and scientific name

SPOTLIGHTED BIRDS – country, local and regional endemics that are regularly present in the world region

INTRODUCED AND OTHER SPECIES – birds that may be regularly encountered in the wild but which are not native to the world region, plus species that were once or may have been ‘regularly present’ but are no longer regularly present

QUICK REFERENCE – see where each species can be found in the world in its native state, and follow the links to find birds based on their common English names
