About this book

The Galapagos archipelago is one of the most famous destinations on Earth for lovers of natural history. Straddling the equator in the Pacific Ocean c. 1000 km west of Ecuador lies 'the world's natural laboratory' with its large radiations of mockingbirds and Darwin's finches. These remote islands of volcanic origin have been colonized by a remarkable and diverse wildlife, many of the animals being quite fearless of man. With 33 endemic bird species plus 12 endemic subspecies, and six endemic mammals, the islands are unsurprisingly popular with birders and general naturalists alike. This comprehensive field guide covers all of the birds and mammals known to occur, providing the latest insights on field identification and taxonomy for challenging groups such as pelagic birds, Darwin's finches, and cetaceans. The Galapagos is also known for its vagrants, which too are covered in detail, including several new records not published previously. Many hypothetical and potential species have been included in a separate section, to further promote exploration of these unique islands.

- Taxonomy follows the HBW and BirdLife International Illustrated Checklist of the Birds of the World and the Illustrated Checklist of the Mammals of the World.
- Detailed texts covering status, habitat and behaviour, age, sex and geographical variation, and confusion species, as well as voice for birds.
- More than 660 illustrations covering all species and distinctive subspecies, males and females, birds in flight, juveniles and non-breeding plumages, where appropriate.
- More than 110 full-colour range maps for all species except cetaceans and vagrant birds and mammals.
- For birds, well-marked subspecies groups receive full accounts, and the distributions of subspecies breeding in the region are clearly mapped.
- QR code for every bird species, linked to complementary audiovisual material.

Biography

Dušan Brinkhuizen is a biologist and lifelong avid birder residing in Ecuador. He graduated in The Netherlands during which period he conducted ornithological projects in several regions of the world. First introduced to Ecuador’s biodiversity and wilderness in 2006, he has remained in the country ever since. Dušan has been leading birding trips throughout the Neotropics, including the Galapagos, for more than a decade. A founding member of the Comité Ecuatoriano de Registros Ornitológicos (CERO), Ecuador’s rare bird committee, and a keen wildlife photographer, he has found several first country records, including a new species to South America.

Jonas Nilsson started birding in Sweden at the age of eight and arrived in Ecuador in 1993. Since then, he has travelled extensively to every corner of Ecuador, including the Galapagos. In 2003, co-produced the Birds of Ecuador DVD-ROM, which at the time was the world’s largest single-disc compilation of bird songs. He is one of the founders of Wildsumaco Lodge and its Biological Station and is also actively involved in conservation via the associated Rio Pucuno Foundation. Jonas has found 12 new species of birds for the country, and in 2013 was the first person to reach the milestone of 1500 bird species seen in mainland Ecuador and the Galapagos combined.
