Product description

Review


"Van Perlo's book can be considered the best bird field guide produced so far for Brazil due to a combination of its light weight and small size, thorough coverage of species, and generally good quality and useful plates, text, and range maps."--The Quarterly Review of Biology


"This latest publication of a field guide to Brazilian birds moves the bar a couple of notches above the several existing recent attempts, all of which have been published in Brazil. It is certainly the single most useful book for field identification of Brazil's enormous and complex birdlife currently available. If you live in or soon plan to go birding in Brazil, buy this book and make the best of it; it will help you immensely!"--AUK


"Any birdwatcher planning a trip to Brazil needs A Field Guide to the Birds of Brazil. It is the first modern, in-depth guide to Brazil's birds and offers information on size, call and identifying features for nearly 2,000 birds. Clear color drawings pack a portable dictionary including an English-Portuguese dictionary especially for birders and some 1,700 species-distribution maps. Simply invaluable."--Midwest Book Review


"Would I suggest to a traveling birder to buy one? Absolutely."--Indiana Audubon Quarterly


"This is now the essential field guide companion that one would need when visiting Brazil."--Idaho Birding Blog


"Highly recommended. The book will be useful to professional and amateur ornithologists, both in Brazil and bordering countries."--Choice
