Overview

Birds of Peru: Revised and Updated Edition

Birds of Peru is the most complete and authoritative field guide to this diverse, neotropical landscape. It features every one of Peru's 1,817 bird species and shows the distinct plumages of each in 307 superb, high-quality color plates. Concise descriptions and color distribution maps are located opposite the plates, making this book much easier to use in the field than standard neotropical field guides. This fully revised paperback edition includes twenty-five additional species.

  • Designed especially for field use, with vivid descriptive information and helpful identification tips opposite color plates
  • Detailed species accounts, including a full-color distribution map
  • Includes 25 additional species not covered in the first edition
  • Features 3 entirely new plates and more than 25 additional illustrations
