Saartjie Kidson and Herman van Niekerk, the authors, in 2003 discovered a shortcoming in local bird guides and immediately started to work on a new series of innovative bird guides. Their knowledge, love of nature and involvement in bird watching and nature conservation ideally equipped them for such a comprehensive project. Two popular regional bird guides, Spotterís guide to birds of the Bushveld and Spotterís guide to birds of the Lowveld, were completed with accompanying, value-adding DVDís and a bird call CD. Then the giant step was taken to produce a national bird guide based on the same concept. Advanced technology, however, now made it possible to replace the separate DVDís with the Callfinderģ greatly enhancing the accessibility of bird calls. A first for South Africa.

The authors are convinced that bird watching in South Africa will henceforth change substantially and that an entire new generation of young, technologically minded people will become dedicated bird watchers.

Saartjie was, amongst others, also a founder member of the Naboomspruit Bird Club and Herman of Friends of Nylsvley. Herman also published various other books.

Saartjie Kidson en Herman van Niekerk, die outeurs, het in 2003 ín leemte in plaaslike voŽlboeke raakgesien en ernstig aan ín nuwe reeks innoverende voŽlgidse begin werk. Hulle kennis, liefde vir die natuur en betrokkenheid by voŽlkyk en natuurbewaring het hulle paslik toegerus vir so ín omvangryke projek. Die gewilde Kitsgids tot voŽls van die Bosveld en Kitsgids tot voŽls van die Laeveld, is voltooi met waarde toevoegende DVDís en ín voŽlklanke CD daarby. Daarna is die reuse sprong geneem om basies dieselfde konsepte oor te dra na ín nasionale Suid-Afrikaanse voŽlgids. Gevorderde tegnologie wat deur Briza Publikasies ingespan is, het dit egter nou moontlik gemaak om die afsonderlike DVD met die klankleserģ te vervang en sodoende die toeganklikheid van die klanke aansienlik verbeter. ín Eerste vir Suid-Afrika.

Die outeurs is oortuig daarvan dat voŽlkyk in Suid-Afrika nou grootliks gaan verander en dat veral ín nuwe geslag jong voŽlkykers die geleentheid en tegnologie gaan aangryp en toegewyde voŽlkykers gaan word.

Saartjie was, onder andere, ook stigterslid van die NaboomspruitvoŽlklub en Herman van Friends of Nylsvley. Herman het ook reeds verskeie ander boeke gepubliseer.
