Ducks of Sub-Saharan Africa covers all thirty of the waterfowl species, both breeding and non-breeding, found in Africa south of the Sahara. These species are individually described in a text that is not only scientically accurate but delightful informative, and illustrated by superb paintings of the adult birds in their habitats, as well as by some studies of ducklings in the nest. In addition, the text is embellished with attractive pencil-sketch vignettes of other waterside birds, mammals, insects and plants.
