Note from the author:

“I would like to introduce you to a book that I recently wrote, with the help of my wife. Although there are already a number of good books on bird identification and field guides in Malaysia, these are often technical meant for the serious bird watcher. I wanted to produce a book that would appeal to the ordinary person, including families and children. Although the title says “Peninsular Malaysia”, much of the book will be applicable to East Malaysia and Singapore.

“In this “chatty” book, with lots of pictures about common birds that the average person and family can get to see, without much trouble, in their garden, city or town. It is hoped that this book can enable many people to know the birds in their garden by name. I hope this book will make the reader appreciate birds more and work towards developing a relationship, a friendship, with them. Today’s children have little opportunity to spend time with the natural world around them. I hope the diversity, beauty, interesting behaviour and warm nature of birds will be a gift to children and adults to grow to love God’s creation.”
