About this book

In six lively chapters organized by continent, each illustrated with 30-40 photographs and artwork and a map, this new book will help you discover where the birds are - whether in Mexico and southern Europe or in the distant, mythic Galapagos, Korea, and Antarctica. In-depth, instructive, engaging text is accompanied sidebars, lists of each area's most spectacular birds, and easy-access information about each place, the best time to visit, and what to expect. Spectacular photographs will make this a gorgeous gift book as well as practical reference.

Each main chapter will begin with chapter-opener photo spread across one or two pages showing a typical habitat scene filled with birds of the continent addressed in the chapter. Each of the six main chapters will have 10 photos of exotic birding locations, such as the Pantanal region of Brazil, with its blue-violet Hyacinth Macaws; or photos of famous nature lodges that cater to birders, such as O'Reilly's Rainforest Guesthouse, near Brisbane, Australia. The most beautiful and sought-after birds of each region - about 20 per chapter - are illustrated by some of the best bird photographers in the world.
