  • Flappet Lark's scientific name (Mirafra rufocinnamomea) isn't italicised (page 415).


  • Terns and skimmers are listed under their own families (Laridae and Rynchopidae, respectively) when they are basal larids (page 352 and 357) [2].
  • Variable Sunbird's scientific name is Nectarinia venusta when it should be Cinnyris venustus [7].

Other things that might not be errors

  • The Northern Lapwing only receives a black-and-white drawing instead of a coloured drawing (page 54).
  • Some of the petrels don't have a drawing on a coloured plate, they only get a black-and-white drawing (page 272).
  • The Pied Flycatcher only receives a black-and-white drawing (it already is black-and-white), but this could be because only one specimen has been found (page 456).
