Birding in Malawi

What's the best field guide on birds for Malawi?

I've looked at a Princeton guide for Southern Africa, but that seems to be too far south. The Princeton guide for Central and Western is too north (and west), and Eastern doesn't seem to stray off the coastal countries.

I'm no birder, but the southern African birders I know use Roberts' Birds of Southern Africa (and the associated field guide). Since it's not really "southern Africa," Malawi doesn't seem to be completely covered, as the existence of this out-of-print supplement suggests.

This list of book s on Malawian birds, including this supplement to Newman's guide to southern Africa (not really a field guide, I think, and also out-of-print) suggests that Malawi is generally falling through the cracks in the literature.
