About this book

A general site guide, covering continental South America, the Galapagos Islands, the Falkland Islands, Netherland Antilles, Trinidad & Tobago, and Antarctic seatrips. Over 200 sites are detailed, with general travel information, accommodation, transport, safety & health.

Any birder venturing to South America, regardless of his or her experience in Latin America, will want to include this splendid bird-finding guide among the essential references taken to be sure to visit the most important locations and find the specialities (sometimes endemics) at each site. Most highly recommended. -- Wildlife Activist
