Beat about the bush

I would like to recommend 2 fantastic books written by Trevor Carnaby,

 

Beat about the bush - Mammals

Author : Trevor Carnaby

ISBN 9781770092402


Book description :

Filling the gap between basic mammal guides and extensive academic texts, this resource answers everyday questions about mammals in an understandable fashion that will appeal to tourists, bush enthusiasts, and field guides. Addressing everything from how an elephant's trunk works to why the blue whale is not a fish, this question-and-answer guide includes more than 700 color photographs and a detailed section on tracks and signs, making it a must-have for anyone wanting to know about the mammals of the bush region.


Beat about the bush - Birds

Author : Trevor Carnaby

ISBN 9781770092419


Book Description :

Revealing fascinating insights into the mysterious lives of birds native to the mother continent, this remarkable guide exhibits the many vibrantly colorful species found in the South African bush. Providing an in-depth discourse on all aspects of bird life—detailing their myriad forms, survival strategies in a harsh landscape, breeding and feeding behaviors, movements, migrations, preferred habitat, unique behavioral patterns, and vocalizations—this comprehensive manual also expertly advises on how to easily and accurately identify each individual species. Populated with more than 900 brilliantly vivid photographs and exhaustively researched to fill the gap in existing literature and field guides, this essential reference will delight nature lovers, tourists, birdwatchers, and bush lovers alike.

found the mammals one at buy.com for $34.47 with free delivery but it is currently out of stock.  birds shows as unavailable with no price listed but you can select to be alerted when it is available.

Just checked with amazon.com and bn.com. Amazon and bn had same price of $40 for mammals. amazon had $43.95 for birds but bn.com had birds as preorder for Sept 1 release date for $32.96 online price.  both offer free delivery.  I also have a coupon number for added 15% off of one item at bn that expires Aug 23 if someone wants to use that too.  M8F4R7X

hope this helps.
