9780002200776: Birds of Southern South America and Antarctica (Illustrated Checklist) (Collins Illustrated Checklist)

South America has long been known for its bountiful flora and fauna. The richness in bird life has attracted visitors from all over the world and has helped to make South America an increasingly popular wildlife tourist spot.

Illustrated Checklist Birds of Southern South America and Antarctica is the first field guide to ever illustrate and describe every species of bird found in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, southern Brazil and Uruguay. This means that any bird that you see in these areas will be identifiable, even if the bird is male, female or a juvenile.

The text details what kind of habitat the birds are found in, key identification features and notes on the songs and calls of each species.

1140 species are illustrated in colour and appear on pages opposite the text for quick and easy reference. Maps are also included for every species to show where the species occurs in the area to further confirm your identification.

Illustrated Checklist Birds of Southern South America and Antarctica will surely be the most comprehensive and easy-to-use book on the subject and a must for all visitors to southern South America.
