About this book

Please note: Volume 1 is the text volume, Volume 2 contains all the plates.

In Birds of Northern South America, 2308 species are described in depth in the text. Clear and authoritative species accounts detail geographical variation, identification, status, habitat, voice and taxonomy.

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.

Includes a discography of South America bird voices.

Media reviews

'A monumental work, this is among the best designed field guides I have come across. What they have achieved has already surpassed by a significant margin all other field guides in the region. This guide is in a different class and is an absolute must for anyone birding South America north of the Amazon.' Birdwatch (January 2007) 'The most important book to be published about South American birds for years.' www.birdtours.co.uk 'Truly monumental The authors and publisher should certainly be congratulated on the production of such an attractive and valuable work, covering in admirable detail the birds of surely one of the richest avifauna in the world.' Birdwatching (May 2007) 'A significant contribution in every sense to our knowledge of Neotropical birds, this major work raises the bar considerably for its subject matter.' Birdwatch (February 2007) 'This latest addition to field guides is superb. An excellent reference work in all ways for anyone interested in the birds of this region.' BTO News (March April 2007)
