Munias and Mannikins
Munias are widespread throughout the Old World's tropical regions, and have adapted well to many man-made habitats from their natural savannah habitats. Their striking plumage makes them popular cagebirds. This detailed guide covers every species (43 in all) and subspecies, and includes 16 colour plates of perched birds, and 56 plates of measured drawings. These are complemented by the comprehensive descriptive text.
"A delightful addition to this publisher's well-known series, but an unusual one in several respects. It deals with only a single genus, whose species the author has specifically kept as aviary birds for detailed study, complementing his extensive fieldwork. A most attractive set of 64 annotated colour plates of measured drawings and life studies augments 16 more formal plates showing the full range of plumages and races."
