Some Americans recently told me that the National Geographic Guide was still
the best available.
I agree about Heinzel, Fitter and Parslow, a very colourful, comprehensive
and reasonably cheap guide.
As to Singapore, there are probably guides to Singapore, but if I was going
I think I could make do with King et al, The Birds of SE Asia, Collins,
supplmented by a bird-list for Singapore (which you can probably find on the
Net), to narrow things down. King et al is old, the plates aren't next to
the texts, but it's another cheap and cheerful guide anyway.
