Birds of East Asia: China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Russia by Mark Brazil details roughly 950 species of birds and provides the best possible selection of information and means of accessing that data in book format with not only all of the essential information one expects from a field guide, but also useful glossaries and indexes to help novice and veteran bird-lovers navigate the information and quickly find what they’re looking for whether at a desk or in the field.

Birds of East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi by Terry Stevenson covers 1,388 bird species with 3,400 color images and provides a concise overview of their behavior, habitats, resident/visitor distribution, taxonomic classification, and related nomenclature.
