‘A Naturalist’s Guide to the Birds of Malaysia and Singapore’ offers readers an introduction to the most commonly seen 280 bird species in Malaysia (including the states of Sabah and Sarawak) and Singapore. It is co-authored by Dr Geoffrey Davison, who is Assistant Director / Terrestrial at NParks’ National Biodiversity Centre, and Yeap Chin Aik, Head of the Conservation Division at the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS).

The book also recommends a list of suitable places for bird-watching, such as Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve, Pulau Ubin, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Central Catchment Nature Reserve, Pulau Semakau, Changi Village and Kranji Reservoir.
A bonus in this pocket-sized book is a complete checklist of the birds of Malaysia and Singapore with their conservation status.
