Summary With the growing popularity of birdwatching in India, both as a hobby and as a science, it is appropriate to have regional field guides. A century of ornithology in the area of southwestern India has generated considerable amounts of information, including the distribution of avifauna, and factors influencing the diversity of bird species in the region. The present work is a mine of information on the ornithology of southwestern India. It will serve as a guide to those interested in the birds of this region. A total of 508 species of birds has been discussed. The descriptions of birds provided here include their size, colour, general shape, unique behaviour, calls, and habitat. For easy identification in the field, a brief description of the family precedes each set of related species. The illustrations include pointers for easy location in the field.
