Publisher Comments:

Tourists are not the only foreigners who flock to Egypt to find solace in Egypt's eternal sunlight and indulge in the lush abundance of the Nile River-migrating birds from the north come too, and visitors luxuriating on one of Egypt's gorgeous beaches, touring historic monuments, or enjoying a cruise down the Nile are bound to encounter a wide variety of bird life. Water-resistant and compact, this handy guide to the resident and seasonal birds of Egypt is a perfect reference for birdwatchers keen and casual.

-50 Migrating and resident species of the Nile Valley

- Ancient Egypt's Seasons:

Akhet (Autumn) - Inundations

Peret (Winter) - Growth

Shomu (Summer) - Harvest

- Map listing birdwatching and wintering/breeding locations
