"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. A comprehensive guide to all 1,817 species found in Peru - one fifth of the world's birds - with subspecies, sexes, age classes, and morphs fully illustrated. This title is designed especially for field use, with vivid descriptive information and helpful identification tips opposite color plates. It features detailed species accounts, including a full-color distribution map. It includes 25 additional species not covered in the first edition. It also features 3 entirely new plates and more than 25 additional illustrations.

Review:

A major accomplishment -- Birder's World
A major accomplishment -- Birder's World
Be assured that when I make my journey to Peru this summer . . . that I will be toting a copy of Birds of Peru at all times. -- John E. Riutta blog
[A] worthy successor to the original edition. . . . The plates are amazingly thorough, again considering the extent of the task involved in covering more than 1,800 species. Each facing page has a species account and map. The text for each species is limited to about one-sixth of the page, and the maps are small, but these features make this 664-page volume a real 'use-in-the-field' book. It's quite an accomplishment. Highly recommended for anyone venturing to this part of the world--how will they top this? -- Bluebird's Laugh blog
