Product description

With over 1800 species, Peru has the second richest avifauna of any country in the world. As a consequence it is one of the most popular birding destinations in South America. This will be the first comprehensive and fully illustrated field guide to the birds of Peru. Text is arranged opposite the plates, in conventional field guide manner. The combination of authoritative text and superb artwork will set new standards for South American field guides.

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' '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)
