From the introduction: The Checklist of the Birds of Angola is the first birders' checklist of all the birds of Angola. It was produced in order to draw together the latest English and Portuguese names for all Angolan bird species, with the aim being to assist bird scholars and enthusiasts to make sense of the rich bird diversity of the country.
