9780691049151: Birds of Peru (Princeton Field Guides)


Nearly eighteen hundred different bird species--one fifth of the world's birds--have been recorded in Peru. Birds of Peru is the most complete and well-researched field guide to this rich and fascinating diversity. It illustrates every one of the 1,792 species and shows the distinct plumages of each. It includes 304 superb, high-quality color plates directly opposite concise descriptions and color distribution maps, making it much easier to use in the field than standard neotropical field guides. The detailed text discusses key identification features, status, distribution, and vocalizations for all species, and many subspecies.



This field guide enables users to identify all species found in Peru, and is also useful throughout much of western South America, particularly southeastern Colombia, southern Ecuador, western Brazil, Bolivia, and northern Chile.



Birds of Peru is an indispensable resource for birdwatchers, biologists, naturalists, and conservationists working or traveling in Peru and South America.

From the Back Cover:


"Birds of Peru is in that select pantheon of bird books destined to make a lasting contribution to ornithology. The authors and artists of this long-awaited book have given us a comprehensive guide that is both beautiful and accurate. Outstanding artwork, precise maps, and succinct text will help scientist and neophyte alike as they navigate the tsunami of birdlife within this fascinating country."--Steven L. Hilty, author of Birds of Venezuela


"Peru harbors one of the world's richest, most diverse avifaunas. Here, at last, is a comprehensive field guide that lives up to the challenge of sorting out and describing that diversity. The authors are uniquely qualified for the task, and have done a monumental job of condensing a formidable amount of information into a user-friendly format that will be an invaluable aid to birders and ornithologists of all stripes. The attractive, well-executed plates will greatly simplify the identification process, and should serve as a mouthwatering enticement for armchair travelers to catch the next plane to Peru!"--Kevin J. Zimmer, author of Birding in the American West: A Handbook
