The horn of Africa consists of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, and Socotra, an area that is under-birded and thus less known than other parts of Africa. Some of this geographical area is off-limits to birders, yet with over 1,000 species recorded, is still an interesting and diverse place.

Nigel Redman, Terry Stevenson, John Fanshawe. The Horn of Africa has the highest endemism of any region in Africa, and around 70 species are found nowhere else in the world. Many of these are confined to the isolated highlands of Ethiopia and Eritrea, but a large number of larks specialise in the arid parts of Somalia and adjoining eastern Ethiopia, whilst the island of Socotra has its own suite of endemic species. The region is also an important migration route and wintering site for many Palearctic birds. This is the first field guide to the birds of this fascinating region, and a companion.

A small passerine bird in the swallow family from northern Africa and southwestern Asia. Drawing by Richard Bowdler Sharpe.

John Fanshawe, Nigel Redman, Terry Stevenson. The writing is of a very high standard, and I am impressed by the overall quality of the plates and attention paid to local subspecies. Birds of the Horn of Africa is the premier field guide to the region.

Within its remit, the book encompasses Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti and Somalia, as well as the small archipelago of Socotra, which although politically part of Yemen (and can only be visited via the latter) is Afrotropical in its avifaunal composition (the same is not necessarily the case for other taxa, including the islands' flora).
