Hong Kong Bird Watching Society has published "The Avifauna
of Hong Kong" in November 2001. Following the tradition of
high-quality annual bird reports produced in recent years, this
is the product of the analysis of 41 years of HKBWS records and
surveys, including the first comprehensive breeding bird survey
carried out in Hong Kong. In a detailed analysis of the status and
distribution of each species in Hong Kong, comparisons are made
with data collated as far back as 1861, allowing an assessment of
status and distribution changes that have occurred in the interim.
These, together with a review of 20 years of waterbird count data,
an assessment of the effect of the wild bird trade on birds in Hong
Kong and a summary of data collected as part of a long-term ringing
programme make this an essential reference to the status and distribution
of the birds of south China.
