About this book

Comprehensive field guide to all the resident, migrant and vagrant birds of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and Antarctic Peninsula, including the Falklands and South Georgia Islands. This is a unique region on the planet including the frozen austral fjords of Chile and the steep Argentina Atlantic coast that is virtually teemed with wildlife. Between are the Valdivian temperate forests that are the realm of the Chucao Tapaculo and the windy arid Patagonian Steppes where Rheas and Tinamous travel in groups. The guide describes over 400 species with over 2000 colour photographs. Descriptive accounts are provided for each species covering identification, status, range and habits. Distribution maps are also included. It is hoped that this book will inspire the reader to observe, learn and therefore protect the rich but also fragile birdlife of this remote outer corner of the world.
