Foreword by Jonathan Scott
A Gallery of East African Birds, a masterpiece by John Dawson. It has been said that, to capture the true essence of a bird, it is better to pick up your
paintbrush than your camera. This collection of paintings by some of the best bird artists
in East Africa delves into the personalities of over 120 species, all exquisitely portrayed in their natural settings. The accompanying text fills in the details about the birds’ behaviour, and reveals some fascinating facts about their mythical and historical background.
