About this book

The sprawling Pantanal plain, one of the world's most famed birding sites, is a seasonally flooded wetland boasting both impressive concentrations of large waterbirds and species such as the Toco Toucan, Hyacinth Macaw, Golden-collared Macaw and endemic Blaze-winged Parakeets. The Cerrado is a distinctive Brazilian habitat that is the planet's biologically richest savanna.

This compact modern field guide features color artwork throughout, identification points and a range map for each species enabling easy identification of all the birds normally found in these vibrant and critically important areas of Brazil.

This is the first part of a planned five-volume series.

Media reviews

"[...] I love the concept and goals of this series of field guides by the Wildlife Conservation Society and Cornell University Press, of which Birds of Brazil: The Pantanal and Cerrado of Central Brazil is the first. Honestly, though, I have to say that I’m very disappointed with the colors of the passerine plates and other issues that I found. However, this field guide is still a must for anyone birding in this region. I hope it succeeds in raising awareness of Brazilian conservation and encourages more birders to visit."
- Grant McCreary (10-07-2012), read the full review at The Birder's Library

"[...] For visitors to this region of Brazil, it is difficult to see why any other bird field guide would be required. This is a modern comprehensive guide with excellent maps. It can be thoroughly recommended to anyone planning a trip to the Pantanal and the Cerrado, and it is exciting to imagine just how useful the other four volumes in the series covering the rest of Brazil are going to be when they are published."
- David Fisher, Birding World 24(9), 2011
