Description

Ducks of Sub-Saharan Africa covers all thirty of the waterfowl species, both breeding and non-breeding found in Africa south of the Sahara. These species are individually described in a text that is not only scientifically accurate but delightfully informative, and illustrated by superb paintings of the adult birds in their habitats, as well as by some studies of ducklings in the nest. In addition, the text is embellished with attractive pencil-sketch vignettes of other waterside birds, mammals, insects and plants.

The thirty six colour plates have been produced to the same size as the original watercolours, and show plumages and environmental features in an atmospheric blend of detail, colour and life. In his Foreward to the book Sir Peter Scott, renowned conservationist and bird painter, writes of the paintings: ‘As a bird painter for more than sixty years, I welcome and greatly admire the fine portraits of waterbirds by Miss Darroll’.
