About this book

South America's largest country is home to a great diversity of habitats and nearly 1,700 species of birds, of which more than 10 per cent are endemic. Brazil is a birder's paradise and an increasingly popular tourist destination. Areas such as the Pantanal and the Atlantic Forests are renowned for their birdwatching potential and boast such dramatic species as Hyacinth Macaw, Toco Toucan, King Vulture and Greater Rhea, not to mention an array of brightly coloured manikins, cotingas, hummingbirds and tanagers.

Two hundred and fifty-two of southern Brazil's most interesting and spectacular birds are featured in this concise and easy-to-use guide, each species illustrated in full colour alongside key information on identification, habitat and distribution.
