Munias and Mannikins by Robin Restall - Munias and mannikins are one genus in a colorful family of seed-eating songbirds that live in the tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, Australasia, Africa, and various Pacific islands. This book is the first comprehensive account of the forty-one species of this group of Old World seedeaters. Robin Restall provides a natural history of each species, including field characteristics, status, habitat, morphology, habits and behavior, food and feeding, movements, calls and song, courtship and display, breeding, distribution, a detailed species description, hybrids, and conservation status. Of special significance are Restall's line drawings and paintings: included in the book are 16 color plates of perched birds in field guide style depicting every known plumage; 64 colored measured drawings of individual birds that show plumage variation; and numerous line drawings, most of which show behavior never before illustrated. The book also contains distribution maps and sonograms.Munias and Mannikins
