Review:

One of Audubon’s 12 Best Bird Books of 2015

"This book looks to be a must have in your library."--William Saur, Passionate Birder Blog

"Very easy to flick through and get a quick impression of what may be unfamiliar families."--Birdwatch

"The ideal guide to take on your travels."--British Ornithologists' Union

"This guide, by award-winning author and illustrator Ber van Perlo, includes all 1,952 passerine species found in south Panama, along with islands such as Trinidad, the Falklands, and the Galapagos."--Emily Silber, Audubon.com

"Making sense out of 1,952 species of anything is a monumental task, but Perlo . . . has done just that in this excellent guide. . . . He also illustrated the volume. Remarkable. . . . This book will probably become a must-have field guide for birding enthusiasts visiting South America, and will be found in all libraries with significant ornithological holdings."--P. K. Lago, Choice
