    Review quote
    'this new guide is a really excellent book that will make birding in Peru so much easier and enjoyable. It is laid out in the perfect way for a field guide' www.wingsbirds.com 'The book describes, maps and illustrates them all, and is a model of high-quality illustration, concise information and clear graphics. A must for both ornitho-experts and armchair dreamers.' Guardian (Nov 2007) " This book far surpasses the competition and for the first time allows identification of unfamiliar species throughout Peru using only one book " Ibis (April 09) '...this book is on a trajectory to revolutionise birding in Peru and to make a monumental contribution toward environmental awareness and conservation in the country.' Cotinga (2009)
