TERRY STEVENSON: Field Guides Leader

Terry Stevenson, originally from England, has made Kenya his home since 1977. He is the senior author of the Field Guide to the Birds of East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi -- the only guide in the region to have a text and maps opposite plates format; it has recently been released as an app, with the added advantage of making it possible to hear many of the calls. He is also co-author of Birds of the Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia and Socotra. Published in 2009, this acclaimed guide is the only one to this region. He is a member/advisor to the Bird Committee of Nature Kenya and the East African Rarities Committee. On November 30, 1986, he set a new World Big Day record with 330 species seen in one day in Kenya; the record stands today.

One of Africa's and India's foremost bird-tour guides, Terry has led numerous Field Guides tours across the African continent, in Madagascar, and in India. He is currently living in a mud-and-cow-dung mansion near Mt. Kenya. Terry's tours include East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania), Namibia and Botswana, South Africa, and Ethiopia. He'll also make a couple of favored detours to India as well as Hungary and Romania.
