Birds can easily be found with the unique Shapefinder. Birds grouped together according to shape, aiding in quick and effortless comparison and identification. A bilingual index of all the birds listed by their common group names, such as duck or sparrow and the relevant page numbers.
The Callfinder(R) is battery operated an easy to use. It doesn't depend on internet or network coverage and has no complicated menus or operating instructions. New printing technology has been used to print an invisible grid over every photo. The eye of the Callfinder(R) reads the grid and recalls the bird's call from its internal memory card. For the first time bird calls can be heard from the pages of a field guide. The text does not merely describe what can be seen in the photographs, but also offers a wealth of extraordinary facts.
New updated distribution maps. Species can quickly be compared with the help of icons illustrating normal habitat, nest position, relative size and social behaviour. More than 800 quality full colour photographs by renowned photographers. Bird species are uniquely grouped together according to four behaviour groups: Waterbirds, Raptors, Veld Landscape and Bush Landscape birds. Grouping is then further broken down into the birds' external shapes ensuring that similar looking birds are close to each other thus assisting in comparing different species.
