This question was asked before on IndiaMike. What you need is the book on R.H.S. by Grimmett and Inskipp. Click on 'Birds of Northern India'

Thanks.

We've got the books. Looking for somebody who can show us where to see some of the birds. We had two half day guided walks at Thattekad arranged through Eldho's and saw over 60 species, most of them new to us. Looking for someone similar for Darjeeling.

You mean Dave doesn't like British guides Richard and Tim?

Try mantru in the above book link. She is from Darjeeling. Also contact Sumit Sen at http://www.kolkatabirds.com. He might recommend someone.
