There are equally interesting sections of bird ecology, wetland birds and wildfowls, pet birds and birds recorded in folkart and religion. One can also read about the Spiny babbler, the living miracles of Nepal and other countless colourful birds living in the native thickets of Nepal. Remember, there are others like it, all equally interesting and full of wonderful photographs taken by the author himself in the wild.
