Sinopsis: Written by two of the leading explorers in the birdlife of the High Andes, this book sets new standards in this field. The book is illustrated by Jon Fjeldsaa, one of the World's most gifted bird artists, who again has proved his accuracy with the fine plumage details as well as masterly renditions of the general impression and shape. Almost one tenth of the World's nine thousand bird species are illustrated, many of them for the first time. Both males, females, young, and distinct subspecies are shown. The 64 beautifully composed colour plates depict over two thousand plumages. This is supplemented by several hundred line-drawings of the birds. Today this book is regarded as the "bible" in Andean birds and more than 4000 copies have been sold. Birds of the High Andes is published in co-operation with the Zoological Museum, Copenhagen, where one third of the retail price for the books is spent on further investigations in Andean birds. A colour prospectus is available upon request. 64 colour plates. Numerous line drawings. Distribution map to each species.
