HKBWS Field Guide to the Birds of Hong Kong and South China is a birding guide book which records the bird species in Hong Kong and the South China region and describes in great details their appearance, behaviours, distributions and migratory patterns. The book contains careful bird drawings which are instrumental for birders to identify birds at field.
