The Beat About the Bush series answers all those everyday questions that are prompted by visits to the bush. It fills the gap in exisiting literature and field guides alike, complemented by more than 900 full-colour photographs. Although details are given on bird identification and all the bird groups of southern Africa are covered in a very informative 'Did you know' section, this work can more appropriately be described as a behavioural guide. It delves into the fascinating lives of birds – discussing in detail thier myriad forms, survival strategies, breeding and feeding behaviours, movements, migration and vocalisations.
The result is a comprehensive reference work in a style that appeals to novices, birders, twitchers, tourists, bush enthusiasts and field guides alike.
About the Author
Trevor Carnaby has spent the last 22 years in the southern African bush, 14 of which have been as a professional field guide in South Africa and Botswana. Trevor’s thirst for knowledge and dedication to self-study over the years enabled him to secure a position as a trainee field guide, after which he utilised every opportunity to develop his skills, abilities and knowledge-base through various specialists in the field, training courses and development of an extensive personal library. Trevor spent 5 years working as a head guide, environmental manager and guide trainer in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve and has been occupied for the last 4 years as a specialist guide in northern Botswana. He has extensive experience in walking safaris in big-game areas as well as mobile tented safaris. Trevor is a keen photographer and believes that knowledge and experience are worthless if not shared, hence his active involvement in guide training in South Africa and Botswana and the production of this book. He is currently involved with specialist guiding and guide training through Beat About the Bush Tourism Services.
