With a thumping 773 species on its national list, including big-hitters like the Rufous Fishing Owl, Egyptian Plover, Red-billed Dwarf Hornbill, Fire-bellied Woodpecker, and West Africa's most sought-after bird, the extraordinary Yellow-headed Picathartes, Ghana is rapidly becoming a top birding destination.

This new edition of Nik Borrow and Ron Demey's Field Guide to the Birds of Ghana has been completely updated, with new and significantly improved range maps, along with some new art and a fully revised text to incorporate the latest taxonomic changes.

This compact guide is the perfect companion for any birder visiting this rich and varied corner of Africa.
