Product description


Anyone with a strong interest in the birds of South America should have this book.---Frederic H. Brock, Wildlife Activist

An excellent compilation of information that is well presented and generally accurate.... I was very pleased to see detailed coverage of large groups of confusing birds, such as the hummingbirds and the parrots, parakeets, toucans and allies.... Without question I recommend buying the book.---Geoff Carpentier, OFO News

This handy guide complements the two larger volumes on the passerine birds previously published by S. Ridgely and Guy Tudor. It, in essence, finishes those works and now completes the avifauna of the entire South American continent. The plates are well-done and finished the bulk of the book with succinct identification remarks on the accompanied pages. For those interested in the varied birdlife of South America it is a must.---Charles E. Keller, Indiana Audubon Quarterly
