About this book

This is the first comprehensive identification guide dealing exclusively with the birds of this region. Both volumes cover all the species, including vagrants, found in Ecuador, Colombia,Venezuela, Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire,Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana. These authoritative volumes will not only be an indispensable guide to the visiting birder, but also a vital tool for those engaged in work to conserve and study the avifauna of this region, which is of such importance to both the indigenous species and those which pass through on migration.

Both volumes are also available individually.

a landmark publication. ... a perfect balance of words and drawings with barely an inch of white space wasted. They should serve as a model for how to plan the ideal field guide. Taken all in all. The Birds of Northern South America is a monumental achievement - an ornitho-dreamer's sourcebook as well as a triumph of fine scholarship and sheer common sense. - Mark Cocker, TLS March 7, 2008.
