Birds of South America: Passerines (Collins Field Guide)

 
9780007477968: Birds of South America: Passerines (Collins Field Guide)

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.

This major new field guide to the birds of South America covers all the passerines (perching birds), with all plumages for each species illustrated, including males, females and juveniles.

The text gives information on key identification features, habitat, and songs and calls.

Beautiful artwork featured across 195 colour plates appears opposite the relevant text for quick and easy reference. Distribution maps are included, showing where each species can be found and how common it is, to further aid identification.

Review:

Praise for Ber van Perlo:

‘Very easy to flick through and get a quick impression of what may be unfamiliar families.’ Birdwatch magazine

‘I found the illustrations and text to be skillfully produced and accurate…the ideal guide to take on your travels.’ British Ornithologists’ Union

About the Author:

Ber van Perlo has written and illustrated numerous books, including the highly successful Birds of Southern Africa. He studied garden and landscape architecture at the Agricultural University of Wageningen in the Netherlands before working as a geographer and physical planner with the National Forestry Service of the Netherlands. During a holiday in Kenya in 1982 he discovered that no field guide existed which depicted all bird species of the area. He began to produce field guides for various regions of Africa, eventually extending to the Indian Subcontinent and Middle and Southern America.
